Everything was going good. I downloaded everything, then logged out and then entered the commands to switch to the purely textual interface. At that point, in root, I entered the command for the upgrade. It was over half complete when it gave an error message that there was not enough space on the device.
After downloading all the new packages, I only have 6.5 GB on the root folder. I have another partition with 25.4 GB free.
If I have to delete some files or folders from root. Any suggestions on which ones are safe? Would it be better to upgrade from a bootable USB?
Doesn’t work. I get this message, which I tried to get past before by choosing the “vendor change” option for all 5. I’ve already deleted all the extra repo:
You are about to do a distribution upgrade with all enabled repositories. Make sure these repositories are compatible before you continue. See ‘man zypper’ for more information about this command.

I’m on the verge of just doing a fresh install and fixing my partition size problem permanently. But I’m still tempted to try and make this upgrade work. It’s normally 3 days of dedicated computer work to get a the fresh install tuned just right. I’d rather use my time differently
Sure. Answer 1. It’s OK to switch back from Packman packages to openSUSE packages to get an upgrade to succeed. Once the upgrade is successful, you can switch back to Packman as your needs may require. Since 15.0 release, some copyrights have expired, so you may not even need the Packman versions.
Good news. Upgrade fully successful. I went ahead and bumped right up to 15.2. I had to do some minor tune ups, but now everything is working perfectly. Maybe the fastest double upgrade I’ve done. Thanks for the assist.
I think my computer still needs a bit of attention. I noticed that during boot up, the screen displays the “Tumbleweed” icon. But I have Leap. I double checked that I used the commands to upgrade to Leap. I did. I checked all my repos, they all are Leap based.
The computer is working fine… at the moment. But I’m concerned that somehow some Tumbleweed code is integrated into my system just waiting to cause problems.
Basically it looks fine, bit the last one (with the not very explaining name x86_64) is still from 15.0.
Did you ever use a Tumbleweed repo where this could have come from?
As I asked you “use CODE tags around a complete copy/paste of the command and the output”
The line with the command is missing here. While people in this case possibly can guess what you commanded, make it a good practice to include that one more line at the top of your copy sweep. Not much effort I hope and very helpful for all.
you complain about seeing something Tumbleweed during boot;
I seeing a 15.0 repo in your repo list
I do not know why you have it, but either you need it and then you have to change it to 15.1 and do a zypper dup --from of it, or you do not need it and then you better remove it.
It could indeed be that you earlier had a TW repo by incident. But that is not now teher. When you have done a proper zypper dup to upgrade 15.0 to15.1, I assume there is not a big problem now. It could be that re-creating inird helps in removing the TW thing.
I ran the dracut code and restarted the computer, but the TW label is still there.
About that repo from 15.0, I am confident that is unrelated. I now remember adding that repo after upgrading (which means after this problem was present). I still cannot recall what application needed it, but I do recall there was one that ran on the old 15.0 repo and the website suggested using it on 15.2. I’ll see if I can recall the specifics, but the point it, that isn’t the cause of this TW thing.
