You could check the suse website where it says zen is broken and if it fails to just run the online-update module in yast.

I don't know why Novell uses mono with ZEN, but like with all new things, there will be many problems. I have had this problem show up so many times, I just quit using ZEN and am slowly getting fed up with YAST. SMART Package Manager is much better and makes updating so much easier. Here is the link:

The section dealing with SMART is toward the bottom.

Good Luck!
