    Default yast online update - what does "patch reinstall" mean?

    When I run "online update" in yast (in text mode), some of the patches are marked with ">". According to Help, it means:

    >: The patch will be reinstalled.

    What's the purpose of it? I didn't see anything similar in any other distribution, when it comes to system updates.

    In the desktop open a terminal and become su, then do

    Code:
    zypper ref
    then

    Code:
    zypper up
    that should sort out your updates.

    Thanks, I'm new to SuSE, didn't know this tool.

    It offers me a different set of updates than yast. For example, with yast, I updated all packages but kernel; zypper offers more packages.
    What will happen here (below)? Will This SLES SP1 be updated to SLES SP2?

    sudo zypper up
