Tumbleweed zypper dup asking to downgrade packages

I am new to Tumbleweed, with a new installation running about three weeks.

zypper dup today is asking to downgrade these packages:

The following 39 packages are going to be downgraded:
  ffmpeg-5 libavcodec58_134 libavcodec59 libavdevice59 libavfilter8 libavformat58_76 libavformat59 libavutil56_70
  libavutil57 libgbm1 libgbm1-32bit libOSMesa8 libOSMesa8-32bit libpostproc55_9 libpostproc56 libswresample3_9
  libswscale5_9 libswscale6 libvdpau_r300 libvdpau_r600 libvdpau_radeonsi libvulkan_intel libvulkan_intel-32bit
  libvulkan_radeon libvulkan_radeon-32bit Mesa Mesa-32bit Mesa-dri Mesa-dri-32bit Mesa-gallium Mesa-gallium-32bit
  Mesa-libEGL1 Mesa-libGL1 Mesa-libGL1-32bit Mesa-libglapi0 Mesa-libglapi0-32bit Mesa-libva Mesa-vulkan-device-select

Here is a screenshot of my repositories:

Is this normal or should I do something differently before executing the upgrade?

Not uncommon for TW to downgrade some packages.

Ok thanks, I’ll give it a go.

Apparently this is due to the Mesa* packages from Packman that changed the spelling of version numbering, so zypper finds them as a “lower” value in alphabetical order.
The upgrade went smoothly here, so no real problem in my view.


OrsoBruno - Thanks for your comment about the Packman Mesa packages, the downgrade had confused me.
