    Default Can't install any software


    Hello community!

    I installed openSUSE yesterday and all works fine so far.

    I've tried installing some software using YaST2 and this worked too
    until this morning: Neither packages I chose in YaST itself nor the
    security packages found by the kupdateapplet can be installed.

    For example: Yesterday I successfully installed csmash (a game). But
    since I didn't like it, I removed it. If I try to install it now, I get
    this in YaST:

    [The original message is much larger...]

    I hope this is a known problem?
