Nothing to do.

You need to use zypper patch to apply "patches".

Actually 'zypper up' also works most of the time. The difference
is that if there are problems like vendor changes, zypper up
will just don't do the update whereas zypper patch will force
the update in.


Thanks for the information. Indeed there were three patches waiting which
zypper update did not find.
After running zypper patch I got following info:

There are some running programs that use files deleted by recent upgrade. You
may wish to restart some of them. Run 'zypper ps' to list these programs.

# zypper ps
The following running processes use deleted files:
(table of programs)
You may wish to restart these processes.
See 'man zypper' for information about the meaning of values in the above

Trying to find out what the shown numbers are I ran man zypper but got the
information that there is no man page for zypper.
I have man pages installed and even installed man-pages-supplement.
Somebody has an idea where to find the man page for zypper?
