    Default Confusion regarding updates

    Hi,
    When I do

    zypper refresh
    &

    Code:
    zypper update
    I find some updates but when I open YAST>Online Update I find no updates.

    Confused

    Simple reason: zypper update is not the same as zypper patch which is
    the equivalent to YOU

    Therefore doing zypper refresh & zypper update keeps the system more up to date in comparison to Online Update?

    In a certain sense yes. The "zypper patch" will only apply the security
    updates which come from the official openSUSE repositories, nothing
    else, whereas "zypper up" will also update packages where a newer
    version is available in the repository from which the package comes from
    (zypper up will not change the vendor!) including all the extra
    repositories like packman.
