What version of openSUSE, how are you updating it, and what is the full output?

here is the results after another attempt.
Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/share/man/man1/asn1parse.1ssl.gz;52dd88b5: cpio: open
error: openssl-1.0.1e-11.14.1.x86_64: install failed
error: openssl-1.0.1e-11.10.1.x86_64: erase skipped

.

I have noticed tha tI have been getting allot of those types of errors .

I havn't tried zypper when I ue the update it automatically loads yaste.
I will search for zyupper and try that

Have you made any recent changes to the system? Done any hardware checks?

It could be a permissions issue, see here:

I read through that post and didn't really understand it but I did do the lsattr /usr | grep bin command and recieved "dlaptop@linux-fpri:~> lsattr /usr | grep bin
lsattr: Operation not supported While reading flags on /usr/tmp
----------I--e-- /usr/bin
----------I--e-- /usr/sbin"
I am not sure what that means

That's usually an indication of a mounted file system being read-only. As for the reason we don't know (yet).
If /usr is a separate partition then see if it has "ro" mount flag in 'mount' output:
Code:
awk '/^\/dev.*\/usr/ {print $4}' /proc/mounts
else (if it's ext[2,3,4]) see what its error behavior should be:
Code:
tune2fs -l $(awk '/^\/dev.*\/usr/ {print $1}' /proc/mounts)|grep ^Err
else just boot the machine adding a space and then "forcefsck" (w/o quotes) to the GRUB(2) kernel command line to force it to check all partitions.
*Any OS can be reinstalled at any time but ensure you have backups of your important files.

This o/p from lsattr
Code:
----------I--e-- /usr/bin
----------I--e-- /usr/sbin"
means the dirs have been set 'immutable' using the chattr cmd
http://linux.die.net/man/1/lsattr
http://linux.die.net/man/1/chattr

You can unset it using chattr.

I am not sure as to how to back up in Linux which I only need to back up my wifi driver and bookmarks and ff addons this is the only thing that is stopping me from just doing a full reinstall .

No, that's a capital i, not a lowercase i.

Do you have an USB stick or any other external medium? What does the 'mount' command show when you have mounted it?

While you certainly should scrutinize all commands people want you to run as root user (at least the second command) that's what I'm asking you to do. The first command simply prints the fourth field from the file showing mount points. You could sort of do the same as unprivileged user with:
Code:
mount|grep /usr
The second command tries to list file (that's list, not write!) system super block details if "/usr" is a separate partition. If it isn't just return what the
Code:
mount
command shows.

I am not sure what commands you are talking about.
If I use this here "awk '/^\/dev.*\/usr/ {print $4}' /proc/mounts" nothing happens.

the same goes with this command
tune2fs -l $(awk '/^\/dev.*\/usr/ {print $1}' /proc/mounts)|grep ^Err

ths command mount|grep /usr
shows this
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/systemd type cgroup (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,xattr,release_agent=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-cgroups-agent,name=systemd)

and as for mounting a usb pendrive I think that it does it automatically because I just plud it in and a popup asks if I would like to open it
