Better to move back to the previous version and wait a bit. A lot of packages fail to build, kscreen6 is just one of them. The updates shouldn’t have been released like that.
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/openSUSE:Slowroll:Staging/kscreen6

I don’t see any way of moving back to the previous version.

YaST shows the following version 5.27 kscreen packages still installed:

  • kscreen5 (5.27.10)
  • kscreen5-plasmoid (5.27.10)
  • kscreenlocker (5.27.11)
  • kscreenlocker-lang (5.27.11)
  • libKScreenLocker5 (5.17.11)

libkscreen6-plugin (6.0.2) is also installed.

This is what the software information currently shows:

I can see in the bug report that you solved the issue. Maybe you can post your solution here as well, so others can see it as well.

The bug report has now been assigned, but it remains open.

To temporarily fix this:

zypper in libkscreen2-plugin -libkscreen6-plugin

will remove the Plasma 6 plugin and install the Plasma 5 plugin.

However, a subsequent zypper dup, wants to revert this change, so I am leaving the currently-installed packages as they are, until a suggested action in Comment # 6 of the bug report, is completed.

You can get otherwise fully up-to-date with zypper dup by first doing

zypper al libkscreen2-plugin

which will prevent zypper from trying to remove libkscreen2-plugin. There might be other Plasma packages that require similar zypper package locking to prevent breakage and/or removal.

I have a very long list of locks designed to keep Plasma 5 and KDE 5 apps in place until upgrade fallout seems to have dwindled to near nothing or better.

I don’t want to play around with too many things, I’d rather suspend using Slowroll, per my post above.

The bug report has been closed as RESOLVED, with a remedy in place, temporarily adding libkscreen6-plugin to the never-update-exceptions, until the next upcoming version-bump.
