Keep in mind that the correct command to update/upgrade a Leap 15.0 
installation until the official release ("GM" milestone for "gold master") is 
`zypper dup`. The reason is that updated packages should come due an updated 
build of the product, i.e. you *upgrade* from build say 0123 to 0127, a newer 
version of openSUSE Leap 15.0 itself. What will happen after the release of 
openSUSE Leap 15.0 is that the product itself does not change but instead 
"maintenance updates" will be released. These are also coming from different 
online repositories, the *update* repositories.

For further investigation you can post the output of `zypper lr --uri` to be 
able to check the repo URLs.
