This has been broken in libzypp since openSUSE 13.2. It returns
`type=NONE` and can't do anything with the repo in that circumstance.

The issue is resolved in libzypp in TW - which is the only case that
matters for this.

Any user upgrading from any different version will, at the time of
upgrade, automatically pick rpm-md as type - so their libzypp won't
matter.

you can reproduce the behaviour by changing your repo from
/tumbleweed/repo/oss to /tumbleweed/repo/oss/suse (which is the current
rpm-md repo) - but leaving type=yast2 in the .repo file: zypper ref
will automatically fallback to rpm-md (NOTE: it will NOT fall back in
the other direction once you switch the repo back to …/repo/oss! and
you should switch back!)
