This fails. As soon as the window opens it quietly closes itself without
asking any questions or doing anything, as do most objects in YaST since
my attempted update two days ago. Now I see on the factory mirrors
libzypp, yast2 & y2pmsh (but not liby2util) have apparently been
rebuilt. Isn't there some less cumbersome way to get them than to
download manually and run rpm -Uvh or reinstall from scratch yet again?
