Hello community!

I installed openSUSE yesterday and all works fine so far.

I've tried installing some software using YaST2 and this worked too until this morning: Neither packages I chose in YaST itself nor the security packages found by the kupdateapplet can be installed.

For example: Yesterday I successfully installed csmash (a game). But since I didn't like it, I removed it. If I try to install it now, I get this in YaST:

[The original message is much larger...]

I hope this is a known problem?
