    A problem that we were not expecting has occurred.
    Please report this bug with the error description.

    I'd wager the RPM database has been corrupted and needs to be rebuilt.

    Try running:
    rpm --rebuilddb

    with sudo/root privileges. This command will rebuild the rpm database.

    I guess you are using apper, or the gnome pk-icon thing, then. Please
    try YaST Online update instead.

    And please, the minimum amount of information you allways should supply, is what version of openSUSE you use.

    And as others already said, not only show a window with an error message, but also tell what you are doing. In Linux there are often several ways to achieve the same resulot. And, we not being clairvoyant, can not guess what you are doing.

    In this scenario there is nothing more to add (apart from KDE current 13.1). As said; I wasn't 'doing' anything apart from trying to receive updates, and got that error message. I'm used to Apper from elsewhere, I know it's limitations and it can brain-fart sometimes, so Miuku's response seems about right.

    BTW. What's the Zypper command for a system check / update? Just zypper up and nothing else?

    As another responder has commented, it looks as if you are using Apper.

    In my experience, Apper mostly works well. But it does not handle failures well. So, in a case like this, I suggest you use Yast online update, or use
    Code:
    # zypper patch
    ########## -- and/or
    # zypper up
    Those should handle problems better and give more useful error messages.

    Thanks, I'll use the zypper command, seems short, sweet and effective.
