    @Conan-Kudo
    Question all: why are we calling updates "patches" in Uyuni?
    it's rather confusing, to be honest, and I don't remember Spacewalk calling it that (it was either called updates or errata, which was a lot clearer)...
    hell, the metadata that information comes from is called "updateinfo"...
    Cedric Bosdonnat
    @cbosdo
    I guess this is because Patches is the terminology used by zypper
    Neal Gompa (ニール・ゴンパ)
    @Conan-Kudo
    @cbosdo it's very confusing, since nobody else calls it that...
    I'd also argue it's bad terminology in zypper, but that's unlikely to get fixed anytime soon :(

    @paususe
    @Conan-Kudo an update may bring new features. A patch is an update that fixes a bug and only a bug, no new features brought in.
    Neal Gompa (ニール・ゴンパ)
    @Conan-Kudo
    @paususe that's a very weird definition, since updateinfo (which zypper refers to as patches) do in fact bring enhancements and features
    and zypper will tell you as such, since it knows how to evaluate those flags
    Konstantinos Tsamis
    @ktsamis
    A patch may affect multiple packages, but with zypper up you can update only one package (if you want) and not get an issue (e.g CVE) completely fixed. That's why it's recommended to do zypper patch on SLES because we bundle fixes for CVEs and other issues in little bundles of packages :)

    @Conan-Kudo
    @ktsamis I'm aware of this... It's the same with DNF/YUM on RH/Fedora
    I can install that update by doing dnf upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2019-94393775ec and it'll Just Work(TM)
    Konstantinos Tsamis
    @ktsamis
    @Conan-Kudo You can do the same with zypper install -p <name of patch> which you can get the <name of patch> from doing zypper patches
    Neal Gompa (ニール・ゴンパ)
    @Conan-Kudo
    @ktsamis You can view the updateinfo data (used by zypper patch) with DNF using dnf updateinfo --list
