If it does not say RC1, then it is RC2. With only one week between RC2 and GM,
as many things as possible are changed to the final version. That way, the load
on the build system is reduces and it is available for the important stuff.
I have now done ‘zypper dup’ on 3 systems. After a ‘zypper up’ today, the dup
usually included about 50 more packages.
You should be ok and on RC2. After posting the “Nothing to be done” (from doing a dup), I had two more updates - IIRC one was Flash. Tested ok. I remember there were more downgrades than expected with numbers similar to yours and the kernel change.
Does zypper honor the setting in YAST2’s repo setting as I disabled the Packman factory repo, Google Chrome and Google talk repos before I did any zypper updating. Those repos could complicate things if they were not ignored. I think it does but LOL lack of sleep.

Yes it does. Did you remember to zypper ref before zypper up?
