    I hope you mean
    Code:
    zypper dup
    and that is assuming your repos were configured appropriately first.

    Once complete, you can verify package consistency with
    Code:
    zypper ve

    You can not “zypper-up from 12.3 to 13.1”. You mandatorily have to use "zypper dup" for this.

    I hope you read the instructions for the system upgrade first.

    Note that thee is a known bug that when you use zypper dup the name in the grub menu stays at 12.3 even though all went well and you are really running 13.1 It can be corrected in Yast-boot section just change the name string

    see what i get back for zypper ve


    Code:
    martin@linux-70ce:~> zypper ve
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    
    The following NEW packages are going to be installed:
    kernel-default kernel-firmware 
    
    The following package is going to be REMOVED:
    microcode_ctl 
    
    2 new packages to install, 1 to remove.
    Overall download size: 57.3 MiB. After the operation, additional 174.9 MiB will be used.
    Some of the dependencies of installed packages are broken. In order to fix these dependencies, the following actions need to be taken:
    Root privileges are required to fix broken package dependencies.
    hmm i donno what i have to do with that? Do i take some certain steps to get some more updates or can i leave this out.
    Are the steps that are mentioned above _necessary_ or not!!?


    BTW - see the resulst for - cat /etc/os-release

    Code:
    martin@linux-70ce:~> cat /etc/os-release
    NAME=openSUSE
    VERSION="13.1 (Bottle)"
    VERSION_ID="13.1"
    PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (i586)"
    ID=opensuse
    ANSI_COLOR="0;32"
    CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:opensuse:opensuse:13.1"
    BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.opensuse.org"
    HOME_URL="https://opensuse.org/"
    ID_LIKE="suse"
    martin@linux-70ce:~>

    well i guess that i was successful in upgrading the system to version 13.1

    any more ideas regarding this upgrade / update !?

    It is not "zypper ve", nor "zypper up". I repeat, it is "zypper dup". DUP!

    Yes, upgrade with
    Code:
    zypper dup
    The 'zypper ve' is usually used to pick up any inconsistencies with package installs and updates. (I'm not sure that it could handle rectifying a badly upgraded OS though.)

    It can't. The packages can be consistent, but still bad.

    I doubt that somehow. I've never been in the situation of a badly upgraded system, but I would find it hard to believe that in this situation 'zypper ve' would report the installed packages as consistent, (although I could quite understand that it would be beyond the capabilities of the resolver to correct the situation.)
