    Angry Update to 13.1

    I (probably foolishly) updated my 12.3 to 13.1 . This has been a disaster. Architecture is X86_64. I guess that my system is too old. I need to back out but cannot find how to do it: YaST does not seem to provide. At my age and a memory problem I need help!" title="Angry" border="">

    This may or may not work. Change all of you repos back to 12.3 and use
    zypper dup. Of course you will want to back up all of your valuable data
    first.

    If you prefer using YaST Package Management use the repo view and at the
    top of the list select to Change system package to this list. Again YMMV

    Although 12.3 was very good, there are benefits to 13.1 (such as LTS) that may persuade you of the merits of persisting
    with the upgrade attempt. It might be helpful if you could tell us in what way your experience has been a disaster.

    How exactly did you do it?

    In what way?

    Back out maybe as complicated as going forward.

    You have to better describe the problem in order to advise better.
