i had this happen once, but restarting the X-server mysteriously corrected it. You may try updating the application database, like you said. Open up a console, type "su", then supply your root password. Next, type "updatedb", logout and in again, just to be sure, then check out Yast and see if it helped.
^ I tried updatedb as root and restarted... no such luck
Still, whenever i load up YaST's software modules, none of the packages in the entire list are ticked. Also, when I load up YOU (which insists there are critical updates for me), it shows no installable packages (I suspect the problem is related).
