I know that opensuse no longer support 10.3. But I recall reading here

This will only be useful if I am correct in the following: I have a 10.3
system that I want to update to 11.2. IIRC, 'dup' was added to zypper
after the original 10.3 release. But it was available as an update. If I
install the zypper update for 10.3, I am hoping I can update the 10.3
system to be 11.2. I will of course be very careful. But is the general
idea accurate? I seem to recall that 10.3 was one of the first releases
that could be updated this way. Is it really possible to go from 10.3
to, say, 11.2, without going to the other releases in between?


I did exactly this from 10.3 -> 11.0 -> 11.1 -> 11.2 all in the same
day. Install the Zypper from the new version, that is install the
zypper from 11.0 on 10.3, change all the repositories to 11.0, zypper
dup, reboot, so on and so forth. I did this without any physical
access. YMMV, of course.

See if you can find what you need here:
