SUSE Manager 4.1 Server


Migration from SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP5 to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2 using SUSE Manager and autoyast profile fails on following dependency issue:


Make sure that:
  • SLE-Module-Python2-15-SP2-Pool for x86_64
  • SLE-Module-Python2-15-SP2-Updates for x86_64
are part of the autoyast profile and Activation key used for the migration. When the module is added, there is no such dependency issue and migration works correctly.


From SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2 Release Notes:

The python executable is only provided via the Python2 module, not via the default repositories.

With SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP1, SUSE has started to phase out support for Python 2 in SLE. Within the standard distribution, only Python 3 (executable name python3) is available. Python 2 (executable names python2 and python) is only provided via the Python 2 SLE module.
