    The supported starting point is an openSUSE release with all current updates applied.

    Can this be done or verify need for it using openSUSE-Leap-15.0-DVD-x86_64.iso ?
    I'm not sure that I understand the question.

    Yes, you should be able to do an offline update using the Leap 15.0 release DVD.

    There are some catches to watch for. Check the release notes before you start.

    As best I can recall, the main catches are:
    • if you were using legacy grub (sometimes called grub1), the upgrade may break booting. In that case, best to switch to grub2 before attempting the upgrade.
    • if using encrypted partitions, the upgrade can cause problems. If you make sure that all "/etc/crypttab" entries use UUID to reference the partitions, and "/etc/fstab" used UUID of the encrypted file systems for mounting, then all should be fine.

    Thank you. In other words, how can I make sure that openSUSE 42.3 has all current updates applied ? There is no network.

    If you upgrade with the DVD you will have a mostly up-to-date system. There might be a few old packages left, if the DVD does not contain an update. But many of those will be removed by the update due to conflicts (and you are asked what to do about conflicts).

    If you don't have a network connection, you just do the best that you can.
