We strongly insist you to backup all important data before starting the upgrade process.

Be mindful that if your upgrade process stops unfortunately due to power or Internet failure, you will be resulted with a unstable or broken system.

You have to change it manually after logging into the system.

If you don’t care about the version number in the boot menu, just ignore i, and continue to use the new version 13.2.

After updating the system, reboot it to apply the new changes.

As I mentioned already, disable any third party or OBS repositories before proceed to upgrade.Additionally, the UEFI specification also allows legacy MBR (MS-DOS) partitions.The Linux boot loaders (ELILO or GRUB2) try to generate automatically a GUID for those legacy partitions, and write them to the firmware. When I rpm install it, it's asking for gcc45-4.5.1_20101208-9.8.i586which is a dependency so I downloaded it.I believe if you add the URL SUSE_11.2/ to your Ya ST configuration, you ought to be able to install those packages.Some UEFI firmware has bugs that cause it to break if too much data gets written to the UEFI storage area.
