Here are a couple of suggestions to upgrade:
- Grab the latest release NLD and burn it to DVD
- Change the installation source to only point to the DVD drive
- Run YaST software update, which will most likely indentify about 650 packages for update.
- Let it run to completion and reboot
That should do the trick to get you completely up-to-date.
