    You seriously need to sort those repos out. You must decide if you want factory kde4 or the more stable 42'
    oss, non-oss, updates, packman, kde42' desktop,
    thats about all you need

    you may be able to boot to level3 and start 'yast'
    edit the repos and then do
    zypper dup
    from a terminal
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    Yes, it's broken because you have mixed repositories - KDE from factory and KDE:42 - you need to remove the factory ones and reinstall the older files.

    There should be a thread or a HowTo explaining why 1-Click Install may create a mess. Ever so often i see people posting problems which are created by too many repos.
    How does a linux geek make love??

    - rtfm; unzip; strip; touch; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; umount; zip; sleep;

    I'm so sorry... forget to mention - yes this will wipe your personal settings.
    Others already mentioned - you have to many repos, it's leading to conflicts like this one.
