    Which explains why zypper thinks you are still on 15.2.

    This couldn't have happened without trying to use $releasever. Sticking with literal version number in repos WFM very well thank you. It may be enough that you change that file to 15.3 and try zypper dup --releasever=15.3 again.

    Are you sure? I used relesever and I didn't hav a problem like this. I do not even have the file:
    Code:
    henk@boven:~> ll /etc/zypp/vars.d 
    total 0 
    henk@boven:~>

    It might be better to just remove that file.

    I renamed the file and run "zypper dup" and all seems fine now. I still have to get rid of the excess repos. I truly appreciate all your help/input and prompt responses. One of the main reasons I love this distro.
