I tried adding the 4.2.4 repo’s and these worked fine. When I tried to do a full system update (1275 packages), I got all kinds of errors concerning package dependencies.
Can someone point me to a doc which shows me the best way to perform this update?
Try this one out. It worked for me.
KDE4.2.* (How To Add) Guide. - openSUSE Forums
Do just as it says and it will work.

since you didn’t say, i/we can only guess you added several unneeded
repos and tried to get to “the bleeding edge” with everything…as far
as i know no one anywhere recommends such action…just too much that
can (and will) go wrong…
repository management http://tinyurl.com/d36dml
especially “In general, keep your repositories to a minimum to avoid
conflicts and breakage. A good choice would be those added by default
at install: oss, non-oss, updates + just ‘Packman’ and ATI or Nvidia
if you need these. That should give you all you need.”

especially, in that thread’s fifth posting, the section on repos where
it says: “when setting up your repositories by following the guidance
in that page <http://opensuse-community.org/Repositories>, initially
set up only 4 repositories (repos). Just 4. No others. Those 4 are
OSS, Non-OSS, Update, and Packman. Adding others can cause
compatibility problems, and users who have advanced past the new user
stage may think it is better to select more than these four–and you
may also, when the time comes and when you learn how to solve problems
that may arise from having others. Until then, stick to the 4. One may
also have to briefly add other repos, install an app, and then remove
the repos (for example for installing a graphic driver, or installing
an updated alsa sound driver).”

and, then in the left column look for “Installation and Setup” >

downloaded documentation – if you elected to install documentation
locally you might find it here (might not, mine is for 10.3, maybe it
got moved a little in later versions…):
