Odd "could not launch" errors & new escalation requirements on new install less than 2 weeks old

Hello thanks for reading
Fresh TW (network) install, fully updated as of this AM.

some examples:

When running package install :
KDEInit could not launch ‘gpk-install-local-file’:

Could not open library ‘libkdeinit5_gpk-install-local-file’.

Cannot load library libkdeinit5_gpk-install-local-file: (libkdeinit5_gpk-install-local-file: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

a search of the repositories do not return a result for libkdeinit5.anything

when running quickusbformatL
Failed: /bin/bash: mkdosfs: command not found
or similar replace mkdosfs with ntfs etc…

I quick search of my drive shows mkdosfs, ntfs etc… installed,

cnf mkdosfs
Program 'mkdosfs' is present in package 'dosfstools', which is installed on your system.

Absolute path to 'mkdosfs' is '/usr/sbin/mkdosfs',

Kshutdown now asks for root PW, but it never did before, and its not in the sbin directory, so it likely should not need root pw?

Program 'kshutdown' is present in package 'kshutdown', which is installed on your system.

Absolute path to 'kshutdown' is '/usr/bin/kshutdown'. 

any help is appreciated

Be sure yo don’t have mixed repos

Maybe an incomplete update/upgrade?
You didn’t say how you updated, whether you relied on an app or manually invoked.

Update from the command line again to see if you have detected old packages…

88 packages to upgrade, 35 new, 10 to remove, 87  to change vendor.
Overall download size: 144.5 MiB. Already cached: 0 B. After the operation, additional

looks like I have an issue.

At this point, I am assuming I need to allow zypper dup do its thing. somehow I have mixed vendors?
john kilbert

perfomred the zipper dup seemed logical:
now :

linux-ags8:/home/Kilbert # zypper dup
Warning: You are about to do a distribution upgrade with all enabled repositories. Make sure these repositories are compatible before you continue. See 'man zypper' for more information about this command.
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Computing distribution upgrade...

Nothing to do.

I still get the same errors, and the same odd kshutdown needing root.
