    Hi, you have still all the 42.2 repositories enabled and NO 42.3 repo in your list.
    To upgrade via "zypper dup" you need to edit the repositories so that they point to the 42.3 version (or add the 42.3 repos and disable the 42.2 ones).
    It is also best to disable the "extra" repos and keep only the OSS, NON-OSS, OSS UPDATE and NON-OSS UPDATE (for 42.3) during the system upgrade at first, you can then enable the extra repos in a second pass, after you have successfully booted in the new system.

    Many Thanks!

    Should I also remove openSUSE-42.2-0 from the list?

    Never mix version all repos must be 42.3. But disable the extra repos until after you upgrade

    Many Thanks!

    I'm able to change only Alias name. Could you please give me how to change by taking one row or an example. I'm new to Linux world, I need this support. If there are any documents in this regard, please share.

    To be able to change repos you need superuser permissions; in a terminal type:
    Code:
    su -
    and your password for root to become superuser.
    Then:
    Code:
    zypper modifyrepo --all --disable
    to disable all your current repos. Then, as you like, add the 42.3 repos:
    Code:
    zypper addrepo --refresh http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/42.3/repo/oss/ "Main Repository (OSS)"
    zypper addrepo --refresh http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/42.3/oss/ "Main Update Repository"
    zypper addrepo --refresh http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/42.3/repo/non-oss/ "Main Repository (NON-OSS)"
    zypper addrepo --refresh http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/42.3/non-oss/ "Update Repository (Non-Oss)"
    At this point you should be able to perform a basic upgrade.
    I suggest to use one of the terminal consoles, available for instance by pressing CTRL+ALT+F1, as the X-server might be restarted during the upgrade and leave you without a desktop, without a terminal and with an unstable system.
    Login as root (or login as a normal user, then type "su -" again to gain superuser power) and issue:
    Code:
    zypper dup
    The process should take some time, so don't panic.
    After you reboot to the upgraded system you should be able to add your other repositories and upgrade the other applications of your choice.
    If you are new to zypper, I suggest you use YaST - Software to accomplish that.
    Or ask on the forum if you meet with troubles.
    Good Luck!

    You could use YaST Software to edit the repositories as well, as suggested by this article https://forums.opensuse.org/content....2-to-Leap-42-3

    The SDB Upgrade contains a sed command that will convert all your repositories from 42.2 to 42.3
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_upgrade

    I'd post the command by itself, but you should really read the entire SDB, particularly the guide for upgrading from 42.2 to 42.3 completely.

    Thank you very much for all inputs. The upgrade failed owing to TimeOut Exception. Seems Download page is experiencing Performance issues for the past 3 days. I'll keep thread posted about upgrade status.

    Following the instructions provided below I just upgraded from Leap 42.1 Xfce 64 bit to Leap 42.3 with no problems, so far - thanks for that.
