Vendor change update error

Fresh install this morning of Leap 15.3 Plasma and I added the Packman repository for the multimedia codecs with:

sudo zypper addrepo -cfp 90 ‘$releasever/’ packman
sudo zypper install --allow-vendor-change ffmpeg-3 lame gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-ugly-orig-addon
gstreamer-plugins-libav libavdevice57 libdvdcss2

Everything installs ok but then when I try to:

sudo zypper ref && sudo zypper up I get:

The following 2 package updates will NOT be installed:

gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-ugly-lang

I can see the above two packages are installed when I check in YaST. Under the versions, the alternate option for repository is the
SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 repository and I see it is correctly controlled by the packman repository. If I disable this repository, the error above goes away.

Any ideas how to eliminate the above error while keeping the SLE repository active?


That’s not an error. It is an informational message.

And yes, I also get that message. It is because “zypper” sees the SLE version as newer than the packman version, but won’t switch vendors. It seems to me that both are using the same upstream version (1.16.3), and it is the local part of the version number that causes “zypper” to see it that way. Usually, this is not important. I just ignore that message.

That makes sense. I appreciate your support.
