Update Error related to ffmpeg-5-mini-libs-5.1.2-10

After the most recent update, when I try to update, i get this Update Error:
nothing provides ‘this-is-only-for-build-envs’ needed by the to be installed ffmpeg-5-mini-libs-5.1.2-10.1.i586

It’s being 1 week since it started. So perhaps it’s not the most recent update, but the update is not older than 2 weeks.

I’ve tried to search a solution, but the only related error I found it’s new, and it’s still being discussed from only 3 days ago. So I’m assuming it was a common problem regarding the new update? Or is it something I did wrong?

Related issue from 3 days ago: Dependency resolution failed 2

Assuming you are using a 64 bit machine, simply uninstall ffmpeg-5-mini-libs-5.1.2-10.1.i586 as it is for the wrong architecture and also the wrong package as outlined by awerlang in the other thread…

How can i remove it safely?
The output of zypper search -i is:

libswresample3_9                           | FFmpeg software resampling library                                             
 libswscale5_9                              | FFmpeg image scaling and colorspace/pixel conversion library

And Yast2 software management shows :

Is it safe to remove just the ffmpeg-5-mini-libs from the yast manager?

Yes it is. See the linked bugreport. If it removes some deps, simply install ffmpeg-5 afterwards…
