Third party packages removed during online/offline upgrade
This document (000020400) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP3
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP1 LTSS
After the server has been upgraded, these packages can be re-installed without conflicts.
The SLES15 SP2 and SP3 libsolv update released October/2021 (libsolv-0.7.20) and
SLES15 SP1 LTSS update libsolv update (libsolv-0.7.20-4.3.1) released November/2021
include the patch to resolve the problem.
The update needs to be installed before the migration and before calling dist-upgrade (zypper dup/zypper migration).
Before calling "zypper dup"/"zypper migration", set a lock on the packages you wish to keep:
# zypper addlock <package>
Then the packages are not seen as orphaned/dropped and won't be cleaned.
If there's no remote repository available, a local plaindir repository is easily created:
# mkdir /Local_Repo
# zypper ar -f /Local_Repo Local_Repo
Copy the 3rd party rpms into the directory.
