Description

Problem
On Leap, but possibly in other versions as well, we are using some old fixed GM images to run upgrade tests.
Example here https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/1702657#settings

For example upgrade_Leap_15.2_gnome etc at https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/overview?distri=opensuse&version=15.4&build=167.2&groupid=50

Reasoning
It would be common sense to migrate an updated system and not a very old one. We should consider updating the image before running the migration test.

Acceptance Criteria

AC1: Before running migration tests, apply all updates. Use an old image as the beginning, therefore both testing updating all updates and a distribution version update (migration).

At first I wanted to resolve this ticket by updating the migration images and not adding any other module to the migration runs, because qcows of EOLd should be at a steady end state. However as I was investigating this, I found out that the qcow images can become unbootable/corrupted without the migration test realizing that.

It is great that yast can deal with that, but we should be testing a proper system, so I will both upload an updated qcow image and add a patch_and_reboot module as a sanity check.
