    Are you using the gtk+ ui of yast? If so, perhaps temporarily try using the qt version instead. I have had this issue with yast2 gtk before, though for some reason it has not happened for a while. Here is a bug report on the issue. You might try using the debugging method shown there to acquire a log.

    To install yast2-qt: First remove yast2-control-center-gnome and yast2-gtk. Then install yast2-control-center-qt, yast2-qt, and yast2-qt-pkg.

    I'm running xfce (only), so yes, gtk is the default. I have figured-out the ncurces installer....but it's not exactly pretty.

    I'll see how much overhead I'd need to run the qt version.

    Thanks!

    I doubt there would be much if any. Qt4 is more than likely already installed. It does not require KDE to be used, so no horrid dependencies.

    I have been using the gtk frontend lately with no issues though, so I am not sure why I did indeed have this problem before and if it is fixed or not on my system.

    Yes this does happen for me too from time to time on GTK. I have found QT version too complex to my tastes :-(
    Confused me a lot.When i re-open it generally works :-) I hope they fix this issue by the time 12.3 comes out.
    you can try using zypper
    Code:
    zypper rm <packageName>
    GNOME Version 3.20.2
    openSUSE Leap 42.3 64-bit
