synaptic worked before, but won't install anymore

I am using synaptic/apt4rpm on my SUSE 9.0 Pro system. It had been working flawlessly when I decided to do the first system update. Now for some reason, synaptic will update the databases, tell me what I need, download the needed packages, but skip installing them. It then goes back to the main screen saying that I still need to install 7 packages. Why won't it install them anymore (I am running as root if that was a question)

As alway, thanks.
