Zypper is working perfectly for me.

On a freshly made upgrade from 42.x like I tried to do?

But why are you doing it like that?

Long before I discovered SuSE, urpmi would upgrade itself and its deps, then
restart before installing everything unrelated to package management. It made
sense then, and still did when I learned how to use zypper many moons ago.

I thought I was emulating this urpmi safety feature via an emulating script.
This was the first time it failed me after too many years to remember of working
as expected with distribution releases, Factory, and TW.

Why it makes sense is pretty simple, bad stuff happens, so avoid whatever
avoidable bad stuff you can. For these situations, I've been counting on rpm's
dependency competence. If everything package management related isn't completely
installed prior to an unplanned interrupting reboot, then restarting is likely
to irrecoverably fail. Where I live, power outages that outlast the UPS
batteries are almost as common as extended Internet interruptions, which is to
say too common.

its not meant to work zypper isn't built against static libs

Package management first is a safety feature built into urpmi that's apparently
been found unnecessary by zypper devs, at least, not yet. :-(

instead we make sure the old one is perfectly
capable of upgrading to a new version. Running "ldd
/usr/lib64/ will give you a list of some of the other
libraries that zypper requires you'd have to update all these as well.

So I guess my two line script could benefit from a study of ldd's 43 line
output, if I were capable of digesting it.

Thanks for your reply!
