Can't YOU on a updated Suse 9.1

I upgraded my suse server from 9.0 to 9.1 several days ago (System update through disks). However, I found that I could not correctly YOU again.

The version showed in the YOU dialog is 9.0 and when I tried to go on,
it will gives me updates for 9.0.

I've checked some scripts, but got nothing. Could anybody tell me that how could I still use YOU, by installing something or doing some tricks on several configuration files, or by any other means?

Thank you so much.

I found the same thing, and did not find a "cure". I did, however, find a great solution.

Get the apt-get package for SuSE . Install it, and set the sources to the correct SuSE update links.
Then, install Synaptic. This provides a nice, YAST-like gui that allows you to find and update packages easily.

A graphical frontend called Synaptic can be obtained from the apt component "suser-rbos". Synaptic is made available in the kde menu "System". Synaptic can be launched from a (ordinary) user login by executing in an xterm, konsole, etc:
sux -c /usr/sbin/synaptic
Synaptic can be executed from root as well. At first you must allow others to write on your X-display by executing the command "xhost +localhost" as ordinary user. As root set your DISPLAY variable (export DISPLAY=:0.0). Now execute /usr/sbin/synaptic.
WARNING! Don't enable the section containing "experimental" packages unless you are willing to risk an unstable system.
