Applying Change Guardian updates using the command zypper up instead of zypper patch as the documentation indicates causes Change Guardian to no longer function. 


The current resolution to this issue is to revert your installation back to a previous snapshot.  


The zypper up command does not apply patches and updates in the same manner and order as zypper patch.  The command has applied updates incorrectly causing the environment to be compromised and unable to be resolved.
