Sometimes when upgrading an OES2018 server to OES2018 SP1 an error message is displayed on the "Distribution Upgrade Settings" screen after running yast2 wagon.  The text of the error is as follows:
Error: Product SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP2 LTSS (SLES-LTSS) will be automatically removed


When upgrading to OES2018SP1, it's okay to disregard this message and tell it to remove SLES12SP2 LTSS.  OES2018SP1 comes bundled with SLES12SP3 so SLES12SP2 is NOT needed on the server.  After selecting to remove SLES12SP2, the upgrade will proceed normally.
