I would suggest disabling all repos except oss(main and update), non-oss(main and update), packman, nvidia and updating in yast2 software management. You'll see lots of red entries. If the red entries show as replacements choose them. Leave red entries that don't appear to have replacements and, of course choose any blue entries.
That should bring pack the correct packages and leave you with the orphans from the disabled repos.
But you should always use the packages from the main repos for your release, including packman, if they're available otherwise you end up with unmatched dependencies that cause the sorts of problems you're having.
If you get any results in yast that you don't understand, come back to us.

YaST System Repair Utility

I have downloaded and written a Suse LEAP 15 iso to usb from which I can boot.
The documentation shows a dialogue in Yast which I am unable to find.

It is called the Yast system repair Utility and the options shown are:

New Installation
Update an existing system
Repair installed system
Boot installed system
Abort installation

The system running from USB gives me an "Installation" Command.

I have nervously gone through that, up to but not beyond the point of no return, and nowhere does a "Repair" option appear.

Go with the update option and on the screen that asks you to choose repos enable only those that i mentioned in my previous post.

Sorry, no such option appears.
I am able to install or not. I don't want to install.

I installed 15 when it was released. I just checked the os and it tell me 42.3!

What is going on?

Hi mrmazda,
Zypper runs but fails to do any work!

I cant install inx1 with either Yast or zypper, I don't know what TW is.

In my area I have:

Code:
-rw-r--r-- 1 crb999 users 10547304 Feb  2 13:47 icon-cache.kcache
-rw-r--r-- 1 crb999 users  1545335 Jan 31 11:17 ksycoca5_en-GB_9vfyGzr+zJ1FR0ilJzLWOpOlz4o=
drwx------ 4 crb999 users       38 Aug 12 16:39 mozilla
-rw------- 1 crb999 users    88111 Feb  2 13:45 plasma-svgelements-openSUSE_v0.5
-rw-r--r-- 1 crb999 users   165196 Jan 31 11:22 qt_compose_cache_little_endian_de4cb0aa27ef43e1bb8d18fad7c77301
Nothing else matches.

It is disturbing to see that neither 'plasma_theme_air_v1.3.kcache' nor 'konsole' there.

While attempting, with a fresh ISO of 15, (not the 'live' version), an attempt to repair cause a serious problem which it recommended I report to bugzilla, which I have done.

Unless one of you knowledgable people can say load thuis, get that, update those, then I seem to have no other recourse but to reinstall.

I just frihtened myself by checking my OS:

Code:
crb999@linux-ox1l:~> cat /etc/os-release
NAME="openSUSE Leap"
VERSION="42.3"
ID=opensuse
ID_LIKE="suse"
VERSION_ID="42.3"
PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE Leap 42.3"
ANSI_COLOR="0;32"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:opensuse:leap:42.3"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.opensuse.org"
HOME_URL="https://www.opensuse.org/"
crb999@linux-ox1l:~>
I downloaded 15 when the stable version was released some months ago.

This is crazy!

Right, mind made up, Pre-install.

I'm going to watch Scotland play rugby, I hope one of you magicians has found an answer for me by the time I get back :-)

Regards

Chris

This is the update option I've marked in red. However, as your last change didn't actually change anything (you still have 42.3) then maybe a reinstall of 15.0 is the best option.

Something obviously went wrong "some months ago". I suggest you boot the Leap 15 installation media. When you get to the installation screen, type in as you see in this image next to Boot Options Upgrade=1 and then proceed to do an upgrade of 42.3 to 15.0.

This wasn't solved but a complete reinstallation means that, for me at least, this is no longer a problem so I'll close it.

Thanks for the help along the way.
