First: Never ever try a "online distro upgrade" aka "zypper dup" for
such a two version step. At best it will seem to work and fail later.

That's been the standard recommendation since forever, but I doubt there's
much reason to pay attention to it for this particular case. The way I
understand it, Leap is built on a foundation of SLE12+ mixed with packages
from Factory aka Tumbleweed, which means package versions in Leap can be
older than versions in 13.2.

13.2 currently runs on systemd-0210-25.16.1, Leap on systemd-210-84.1, 13.1
(via updates) on systemd-208, 13.1 (via repositories/Base:/System:/Legacy,
which most of my 13.1 installations are already running, poised to go into
Evergreen) systemd-210-74.1. At this level, it shouldn't make much difference
whether upgrading from 13.1 or 13.2.

13.2's glibc is 2.19, Leap's glibc 2.19, 13.1's 2.18, so likely not

You also have to compare rpm and libzyp, and related.

One suggestion was to upgrade those first, then proceed with the rest.

Those two were just examples. I start upgrades with a script after locking

zypper -v in zypper libzypp libsolv-tools rpm openSUSE-release
zypper -v in device-mapper dmraid glibc lvm2 multipath-tools mdadm systemd udev

There may be others that would be good to do at the outset. I finish by
unlocking and installing kernel.
