I had exactly this problem a week ago. I believe the reason was that I
had done some updates out of the required order, trying to upgrade to
10.1 before it was quite ready.

I finally had to wipe my system partition (thanks to the person who
advised some months ago to separate system and /home onto different
partitions) and reinstall 10.1, then update ONLY libzypp -- deselect all
the other offered updates before you allow it to continue! This solved
my problems, and I now have a well-working system, updates and all.
