Issue updating new OpenSuSE 12.2 v4 AMI

Hi,

I have an error when updating this server creating using the SUSE Studio. Each time the update process shows up errors and then hangs indefinitely. Following a reboot of the machine, the system reports that there is “Nothing to do”. I would like to be assured that this is really the case. I have created and terminated 3 instances now and the same happens each time.

openSUSE-12.2-v4.0.0.x86_64

On the first 2 attempts, I used


zypper patch

but this produced the same issue.

Also, Yast is not installed by default. I installed Yast2 using Zypper, but when I run Yast from the command line, I get a completely empty menu, with only the options to Help or Quit.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

I have solved all issues.


zypper in autoyast2
zypper in yast2-online-update
zypper in yast2-online-update-configuration
zypper in yast2-online-update-frontend
zypper in yast2-users

gave me everything I needed and then the online update from within Yast worked faultlessly!

I hope this helps someone else.
