    What do you mean by "upgraded"? Did you try to move to 13.2? If so what method?

    Upgraded in the sense I have selected the option " upgrade if new version available " from yast software manager. I mean some of the packages have been downloaded and installed from online repositories.

    So what did you update? Was it a normal update that comes periodically or did you select certain packages to update. We can not see over your shoulder so you need to tell exactly what you did. Just guessing you selected package-All packages-Update if newer packages are available

    Maybe we need to look at your repos list please show us output of

    zypper lr -d

    Please put computer output in code blocks the # in the posting editors window

    Rupesh,
    Although terminology seems to vary across distros,
    Here in openSUSE we generally regard an "upgrade" as a major re-installation moving from one major version to another (like 13.1 to 13.2).
    We generally define an "update" as downloading and installing only the latest files but staying within the same distro version (today, typically 13.1).
    It's also possible not to update or upgrade but only patch a system.

    In the future, try to copy and paste the exact complete error.
    Based on what you posted, it's likely that the fuse package isn't found by <some> mounting process but it's anyone's guess whether this is when your system is booting up or during Desktop loading or manual mounting(any and all are possible).

    Also, have you ever mounted an NTFS volume on this system before or is this the first time?

    In any case, if you already have fuse installed, you can force a re-install with the following command (should work also if you haven't installed fuse before). Zypper is the command line package management system which an alternative to opening up YAST (which you may instead want to do if you are an openSUSE newbie).
    Code:
    zypper install fuse
