While trying to dup to Tumbleweed 20190202, the installation process
suddenly got stuck at trying to install 'btrfsmaintenance' at 70%. This
is the last output in /var/log/zypper.log from 40 minutes ago, no updates
since then:

I can *still* ssh into the machine, there is basically no system load,
also no btrfs scrub/cleanup maintenance stuff running which was my first
idea. What should I do in this situation? Is there a way to find out what
went wrong?
kill the zypper dup process, manually remove btrfsmaintenance, the restart
the dup process. after it completes do:
zypper -v in btrfsmaintenance
Today I tried to 'zypper dup' again (the meanwhile released 20190205) and it
worked flawlessly, so that's it I guess.

Now of course I'm glad that snapper saved me there, but I still don't know why
a package would just fail installing and halt the entire 'zypper dup'
