How to switch from PackageHub packages to supported version

This document (000021407) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15


While a package is already installed from PackageHub, a newer supported version of the package in another repository is available.

In the below example a supported version of the same package was added to the Public Cloud Module.
The package is not updated by default as it would be needed to allow a vendor change from openSUSE to SUSE:
sles15sp2: # zypper se -s python3-crcmod
S  | Name           | Type    | Version        | Arch   | Repository
i+ | python3-crcmod | package | 1.7-5.3.2      | x86_64 | SLE-Module-Public-Cloud15-SP2-Updates
v  | python3-crcmod | package | 1.7-bp152.3.15 | x86_64 | SUSE-PackageHub-15-SP2-Backports-Pool


The package can be updated to the supported version from Public Cloud Module allowing a vendor change with the option --allow-vendor-change.

 zypper up --allow-vendor-change python3-crcmod
