and that's wrong. TW should *only* be updated through 'zypper dup'.
Nothing else.

That is so.

but why?
tumbleweed repos are like every other repos.

Format wise yes, content wise no. The TW repo from today may contain
completely different packages than the one from yesterday. The packages from
todays repo are built using the other packages from todays repo.

hmm, ok. understood.
but i think this should be stated somewhere more prominent.
not like "it is best to do zypper dup", but more like "there may be
unresolved/unshown/hidden package dependencies in
the future, so you MUST use zypper dup at the moment you move to tumbleweed

Yes, this is true.

As long as not all upstreams provide correctly versioned libraries, zypper dup
is required before installing any new software.

ok, this means, in the future, whenever i try to update a single package, and
it again fails, then i have to disable all
the other repos, so that only the tumbleweed repos are valid any more, and then do a
"zypper dup" to resolve the
"unknown" issue.
this will, of course, downgrade ALL the packages from other repos, where
packages from tumblewwed repos are older, and
these have to be upgraded then again afterwards....

very very expensive...... :-(

No, you do not need to disable other repos, but it is best not to use them, specially if the packages you want are available on TW main repos (oss, non-oss, and update)

You simply have to run "zypper dup" periodically. Often.
