The maintenance update tests following the following general pattern:

  1. list all packages in the incident
  2. install all packages of same name from the product
  3. run zypper patch
  4. check if all packages in the incident were installed

This is done via the INSTALL_PACKAGES and VERIFY_PACKAGES variables.

The following situations can occur:

So this last scenario is what you are seeing. So far we fell back to manual install testing, as this is infrequent. I believe we can adjust the overall test here to do a plain installation test, without first trying to install the (non-existing) old packages. This adjustment probably goes beyond lsmfip.
