from 2020-04-17. The thing is, the downgrade happened without changing opensuse-release version (or whatever corresponds to distro upgrade).
Because this package seems essential, I tried to track its version history. Google shows only two results for python3-rpm 4.15.1-5.1 and rpm.unique.list from 2020-03-24 has 4.15.1-3.1 version only. This version has never been installed on my system, though.
Is this normal, or maybe something bad is happening to my system?
Hi! But is it normal for downgrade to be the only operation even without bumping Tumbleweed snapshot version? This was the only operation in zypper on that day. I had to accept that in CLI, like with any other dup. Thanks for your reply, btw.!
A likely scenario if it’s present in the update repository, or if you updated to a mirror that wasn’t synced when you ran a dup, I normally keep an eye on the mailing list to see when an update is ready as well as any other information eg the latest systemd update and possible issues…
Comparing release numbers between repositories is meaningless - they are completely independent and do not imply that one is “newer” than another. Tumbleweed Update repository is used for one-off emergency submissions that bypass normal release process. This was apparently one of such cases:
submit: openSUSE:Factory/rpm@278 -> openSUSE:Factory:Update
Important! Otherwise systems break completely.

If you need to know details you probably need to ask developer who submitted this request.
