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

I thought I was emulating this urpmi safety feature via an emulating
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,

It seems that bad stuff that happened here is triggered somewhere
between chair and display.

Also note that for regulary maintained releases, zypper patch will
update package management stack (zypper, libzypp, rpm) befor installing
other updates. This does not make sense for dist upgrade where exactly
stuff that happened to you would happen - but hey I guess you know
better then developers of distribution.

Good luck with shooting yourself in leg (and I hope that you will keep
us updated)
