With yast I get a pop-up warning. More difficult to miss.

Are you inferring that "zypper [dup/up]" installs or upgrades items
w/o first presenting you a list of those items?

No, zypper presented a list, but I did not read it and accepted "as
is". I was not expecting anything else to be installed, so I simply
did not look above the current line. My fault entirely.

What I say is that YaST presents an intrusive dialog which is not so
easy to not look at. When nothing is added automatically because of
dependencies, the dialog doesn't pop up.

I have never experienced this. And because I am concerned about
what is going to to be changed, I use "zypper -v [dup/up]" which
offers some explanation. The use of "-vv" gives more detailed

With yast I typically remember to look at the summary tab. If not, I
notice the dialog, abort, then I go to the summary tab instead to
check. I can see for each package a description and what repo it comes
from. I can change the decision made on a single package if I wish.
The information is detailed and I can do adjustments.

I'm more comfortable with it, I make fewer mistakes.
