zypper was introduced with openSUSE 10.2.
But its not only about zypper.
openSUSE (formerly known as "SUSE Linux professioal") only supports
upgrades to the directly following version. This is due to changes of
configurations and migrations to other technologies (like replacing
init with systemd).
So from 9.1 to 13.1 you'd have to perform 15 system upgrades.
See version history:
My guess is, that it might be a lot easier for you to do a plain
installation (maybe on a separate partition) of openSUSE 13.1 and then
apply your configurations from the old system manually. This is most
likely the fastest and cleanest way to switch to the latest openSUSE
However if you do the 15 upgrades (and succeed), please blog about
Just to be on the safe side you should create a backup of your system first.
