Dont forget about to-be-upgraded systems when changing essential stuff

use an updated rpm and or some related libs first before being able to
perform a zypper dup.

Well, once you start thinking, you will recognize that this situation -
requiring an updated rpm - is inevitable: A sufficiently old rpm program
just is not going to be able to read a sufficiently new rpm package.
That is to say, even if rpm has had feature X for time Y, some dude will
try to upgrade from a version older than Y.
