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.

But "zypper dup" is the reccomended method to upgrade from, say, Leap 42.3
to 15.0. It is supposed to work out of the box.

There is, of course, another method using the DVD, which I personally

If you expect migrations to work perfectly between a released product
and the earliest development versions of a brand new codebase, then
you are quite frankly stupid.

If you run into problems and do not file bug reports, then you are
quite frankly useless
