Unfortunately I am unsuccessful with the "zypper dup
--no-allow-vendor-change" command.

Zypper calculates 95 problems on my main PC. Zypper offers exactly
1 solution for each of the 95 problems. It suggest to change
packages from Packman to openSUSE, from KDE to KDE:Extra etc.

Typically, the package has disappeared on packman. They are migrating
a lot of packages.

Also Zypper suggest to choose some self-compiled RPMs with
"official" RPMs from repositories.

You have to give your home repo a higher priority (lower pri number).

# zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change Warning: You are about to do
a distribution upgrade with all enabled repositories. Make sure
these repositories are compatible before you continue. See 'man
zypper' for more information about this command. Loading repository
data... Reading installed packages... Computing distribution
upgrade... 95 Problems:


It offers 4 options: 1 (solution 1), s)kip, r)etry and c)ancel. If
I refuse only one suggestion with "skip" Zypper comes to an endless
loop. If I answered the 95 questions with at least only answer
"skip", Zypper starts again.

Unfortunate, yes.

So if I have to say "Yes" to everything, I don't see the
difference between "zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change" and
"zypper dup". Especially "zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change" does
not preserve my repository preferences for me.

It gets much better if you use it everytime.
