Hello Malcolm,

thanks for your reply, well the "manual" I used was TID 3303599 ( https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=3303599 ) which does mention --cleanup and --deregister but to the time the TID was released this options where future music. But I think basically it´s doing the same. And yes afterwards SUSEConnect -r <YourActivationCode> -e <YourEmailAddress> --debug &> /tmp/reg.log to register the system again.

I insert the ISO to the virtual machine start up, choose Upgrade in boot menu, make the settings needed, configure network settings (identical to the normal operation of the machine), see system partition to update then accept license agreement, accept removed repositories well and then there are the two errors.
