    Default YaST2 Software Management warning: nothing provides appdata (Dolphin & Ark .noarch)

    Hello everyone. I am a fresh openSUSE user, installed Leap two weeks ago after 12 years of running Kubuntu. It took me couple of days to get used to it and now I am starting to really like it. However, I am not a linux expert - just a user who can get around most problems given enough time and, sometimes, help

    So, now I need some help. Every time I run Software Management in YaST2, I get this warning panel that says:

    nothing provides appdata(org.kde.dolphin.appdata.xml) needed by application: Dolphin-.noarch

    Conflict Resolution:
    1: deinstallation of application: Dolphin-.noarch
    2: break aplication: Dolphin-.noarch by ignoring some of its dependencies

    and then below goes that same block for Ark instead of Dolphin.

    I am not sure when and why this problem arose as I usually run zypper from the terminal, but I believe it first showed up after initial updates after the Leap installation. It is not a big deal as Dolphin works as expected, but having to deal with that panel every time I start Software Manager is a bit annoying.

    Any help, suggestion how to deal with this?

    Thanks in advance.

    That look like a packaging bug.

    I tried "zypper ve" and got:
    Code:
    # zypper ve
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    6 Problems:
    Problem: nothing provides appdata(hugin.appdata.xml) needed by application:hugin-.noarch
    Problem: nothing provides appdata(org.kde.ark.appdata.xml) needed by application:Ark-.noarch
    Problem: nothing provides appdata(calibrate_lens_gui.appdata.xml) needed by application:Hugin calibrate lens-.noarch
    Problem: nothing provides appdata(Thunar.appdata.xml) needed by application:Thunar File Manager-.noarch
    Problem: nothing provides appdata(PTBatcherGUI.appdata.xml) needed by application:Hugin batch processor-.noarch
    Problem: nothing provides appdata(org.kde.dolphin.appdata.xml) needed by application:Dolphin-.noarch
    However, I am not seeing any problems when I start Yast.

    I suggest you open a bug report.

    It should be safe to choose "2" in that conflict dialog, since that doesn't change anything.

    Thanks for your replies.
    I have tried both options and nothing ever happens - Dolphin and Ark work normally and that message keeps popping up. Tried zypper ve and got the exact same 5 warnings (no Thunar file manager here).

    I looked at the bug reports and there are similar reports for Thunderbird and Thunar. Should that cover other, similar, cases like mine or should I report another?

    Also, the same is happening on my laptop, but only on zypper ve, YaST is fine. Also fresh installation of Leap.

    You could just add a comment to the existing bug report.

    If you do that, be sure to mention that it is causing problems with using Yast. Perhaps that will get it more attention.

    Update from bugzilla:

    "The right fix is in the work on the zypp stack - where the problem originates."

    So I guess all we have to do is wait.

    Final update: This afternoon updates for Dolphin and Ark arrived and solved the problem. So, that's it.
