That seems to have been part of the problem. I had to run the online
update twice, because I had forgotten that the blue checkmark means
"don't update". Once I selected libzypp for forced update, things
seemed to go smoothly.

However, now, when I click on "online update", it check for available
updates, then quits silently. It never gives me a chance to select
anything for update, even though there were hundreds of packages with
blue checkmarks, but later versions available when I ran the program

Also, when I click on "online update configure" or "...setup", neither
program runs at all -- I get a quick blip as if it were starting up,
then nothing.

Finally, "software management" comes up refreshing (or whatever it's
doing for many seconds during startup), then quits silently.

So,the Zen updater says there are no software updates, and refuses to do
anything else; the software management just quits; and online update
doesn't run.

Where do I go now?
