    It is not supported anymore, so you should not even have tried to update

    That does not say much. If you haven't updated since say June, that should not be a suprprise.
    But it should also not be a suprise if from now on the repos will vanish one by one.

    It also depends of course what repos you have. Some home repos e.g. mat sill automatic update when they have a change in the package.

    In any case, you better stop updating (and thus worrying about it) and just move over to 15.1

    I updated on Dec 02. Then I saw this post, booted into 15.0 and updated again. There were several new patches.

    The work on those patches was probably in progress. Maybe there are a few more in progress.

    I run 15.0 on 4 devices. Shall i install 15.1 now, or wait for 15.2 ?
    Any experts have a smart advice to give ?

    Your choice.

    These days, I am an early adopter. But 10 years ago, my practice was to keep with a release until its EOL, and then still continue until the next release came out. If I were following that practice, I would be waiting for 15.2 before upgrading.

    But you have to assess the risks. It is possible that a serious security problem might be found, and for that there will be no fix with 15.0.

    It also depends on the path you want to walk to the new version. When you want to use the "change repos and zypper dup" method, I would go to 15.1 asap and to 15.2, a few months after release.

    When you want to do a fresh install (keeping user data), I would wait until a few monts after 15.2 release and then jump.

    But that is my personal idea, amongst others based on the glimpless updtea from 15.0 to 15.1 using change repos I had.

    That would imply running an unsupport version for quite a long time. 15.2 will be released in May 2020 ......

    I'm planning to do some laptop upgrade 15.0 -> 15.1 with stock repos + Packman doing a
    Code:
    zypper --releasever 15.1 dup --allow-vendor-change
    Which worked fine in a test VM with only stock repos and without the vendor-change option.
