The most likely cause of this problem is a wrong /etc/products.d/baseproduct. Check if the link is pointing to the correct file. By default this should be /etc/products.d/SUSE_SLES.prod. If the link is correct, check if the content of the file is pointing to the correct OS version. Before copying information from a comparable system, check what happened on this system that could cause this problem.
