I am new to linux so I apologize if this question is really stupid, but I am stumped.
How do I get Yast2 to look up a software package so I can upgrade?
Specifically I am trying to upgrade from PostgreSQL 8.1 to 9.x.
When I click ‘Software Management’ and search for ‘postgres’ it only shows me postgres 8.1, which is what I have already installed.
I seem to remember from a few months ago using yast that it would search ‘somewhere’ automatically and show me new packages available. I don’t remember how I got to that option, and now I can’t find it.
Under the option ‘Installation Source’ it seems to list places it will look for packages, but I can’t find the source that it needs to look for a new postgres package. I tried to ‘add’ a source, with server = postgresql.org, directory = download, but that was obviously wrong and it let me know so.
So I am at a loss. Laugh at me all you want but please tell me what I am doing wrong.

openSUSE generally doesn’t upgrade applications to new versions during
the life of an openSUSE release. So the best way to get a more modern
release of an application is usually to upgrade to the latest release of
openSUSE. If you already have the latest openSUSE and want an even newer
application, you may find it in a different ‘repository’. You can search
