Best way to upgrade from 13.1 to 13.2

There is no doc which I could find about upgrading from 13.1 to 13.2. Maybe it is still forthcoming.

Can I upgrade from Yast when running in 13.1 ?
Can I upgrade using the 13.2 DVD ?
What is the recommended, safest way to upgrade ?

Check down this list for the first page or two, there are several threads with the same questions answered within the past day.

BTW: I meant my reply in a friendly manner. Those threads I mentioned have some very usefull information and some good links for you.

As for me, I hit the wall a few hours ago and need to pull out of here for now and get some sleep.

Best of luck.

Thanks ! Not easy to find any of your links from the 13.2 web page at Archive:13.2 - openSUSE Wiki. The first two are the best links.

No problem. I took your answer as friendly. Thanks !

I know, but I can’t do anything about it. You can make a suggestion at
the discussion link, perhaps :-?

Well, I trust the best way to upgrade is documented here:

https://de.opensuse.org/SDB:Distribution-Upgrade
(GERMAN)

https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_upgrade
(INGLES)

I did it last time from 12.x to 13.1, did it today from 13.1 to 13.2.
Works perfect.

One hint: The “security” repo (clamav related) is not there for 13.2 - leave it with the 13.1 repo.

Have fun.
