Zypper Search Can Find a Pacakge, but Zypper Install Cannot

So I’m trying to install these packages.
xcb-proto xcb-util xcb-util-wm xcb-util-cursor xcb-util-keysms

And I used zypper search to make sure they were all in the repos, which they are.

But when I do

sudo zypper install xcb-proto xcb-util xcb-util-wm xcb-util-cursor xcb-util-keysms

It says package not found for all the ones listed.
I’m sure I’m just being a noob, but why doesn’t this work?

How should we know? You neither show full search command and its output nor do you show the full output of zypper install command.

oh well if this will help:

zypper search xcb

the output
