    I always log out of my desktop environment and run the upgrade while I do something away from the computer (e.g. eating, showering, cleaning, exercising, etc). Nothing desktop related can freeze the system, and my computer is almost completely focused on upgrading.
    I was using lxterminal, distribution upgrade has just failed and ended before completing, all others including mouse and keyboard was working fine.

    Warning: It is strongly recommended that you run the upgrade outside the X-window graphical mode.

    I should say "... distribution upgrade must be done outside X Window if you don't want risk upgrade failure"(which could lead to unbootable system)
    You can also read the "Discussion" behind the SDB (Discussion tab) for the experiences and reason why the recommendation exists today.

    I remember having a similar problem with btrfsmaintenance during an upgrade; although, I don't remember what I did to solve it.

    I do remember reading this bugreport https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1110259

    Currently, I uninstall btrfsmaintenance and perform maintenance manually approximately once a week.

    My current update procedure is:
    Code:
    zypper up btrfsmaintenance
    zypper dup
    As previously mentioned, I do this from a session running under "screen -L".

    The separate update of "btrfsmaintenance" is because I have learned the hard way that this package update can lockup. So it is easier to deal with that if I am only updating the one package at the time. And then I can update everything once that is done.

    Well, thank you.
