Yes I have seen this too on all 3 8.1 machines I updated to 8.2 (all
the other 8.2 were fresh installs). I was under the impression that SuSE
updates actually worked.

There was absolutely no way to convince yast update that this was not
an 8.1 machine (/etc/SuSE-release contained 8.2), it insisted on
loading updates for 8.1. I poked around in /var/lib/YaST2, and sure
enough there was a file containing 8.1 in either its name, its content,
or both. Deleting that solved the trouble, and immediately YOU offered
the 8.2 updates instead of the 8.1 updates. The file seems no longer
used by 8.2 yast, and I can't remember exactly what it was called.
