logon loop after software updates to 4.7.5

Yeah, latex itself consists of 1500+ packages or something like that…

But it is not installed by default.
And normally, having over 1000 updates is often a sign that the user added Factory/Tumbleweed or the OSS repo from a different distribution version than being installed.

So IMHO it is a good idea to take a look at the repo list first if somebody mentions problems after having installed 1300+ “updates”.

And that was indeed the case here.
