    Default openSUSE 11.0 zypper won't update some packages


    I have just done a fresh install of openSUSE 11.0 x86_64 and have run
    into a zypper/openSUSE updater problem. There are three packages which
    are claimed to be required to be updated from openSUSE-11.0-Updates but
    neither zypper nor openSUSE updater does anything when I authorize the
    update. For example, as root using zypper, this is what I get:

    xxx:/home/xxx # zypper lu
    Reading installed packages...

    I have looked at the 11.0 update repository and there are two delta
    rpms for these packages and I have downloaded these packages and tried
    to install them but YaST tells me they are already installed. I have
    also updated these packages through YaST so I am pretty sure I have the
    latest versions installed. Aside from these packages the updater seems
    to be working, for example, the latest fixes to cups were installed
    without problem.

    Does anyone have any suggestions to clear the zypper/openSUSE updater
    listings? Thanks.

    I think I briefly remember this happening. I ran the Online update
    module in YaST instead of through zypper:


    Code:
    --------------------
    yast2 online_update
    --------------------


    And it cleared it up.
