    It is difficult to say without knowing the context and why he advised to
    use dup.

    Your repo list seems correct, there should not be problems with it.
    However, for making sure, you could disable the packman repository
    temporarily, then run the "zypper dup". After it finishes, you can
    activate the packman repo, and switch the multimedia packages you want
    to packman, following the published guide.

    After that, just run "zypper patch" or "zypper up" (there are
    differences) to keep your system updated, now and then. Or use apper, or
    yast online update...

    If you still have problems after that, then the reason is not the
    "zypper dup" procedure, but something else, which you must ask about in
    an appropriate thread with an appropriate tittle related to the problem.
    Preferably a new thread with links to previous posts.
