It might get locked if you got it from a different source, than the one
providing the update or if a dependency makes it needed.

In my experience, you can unlock the, (right click in yast) and
see what happens. Be sure the autocheck dependencies checkbox
checked to instantly see why Yast thought it should be locked.
