zypper in rpm before the zypper dup. I've filed a bug report already about
incorrect dependencies. They have changed the rpm compression format.

Try zypper in rpm as suggested but having another problem :

vavai # zypper in rpm

Please see the above error message for a hint.

is this the problem related to my online access (I have no problem
with internet connection) or is there any problem with my installation
source ?

Here is my installation source :

# zypper lr
# | Enabled | Refresh | Type | Alias | Name
1 | Yes | No | yast2 | non-oss | non-oss
2 | Yes | No | rpm-md | fact | fact
3 | Yes | No | yast2 | oss | oss

* fact = factory installation source

Hi try zypper ref and then attempt to update rpm in yast. I've experienced that problem once before but I can't remember what caused it. Yast will give more specific information on the failure and sometimes just clicking retry will help.
