More info after reinstalling w/ rpm:

The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not
configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm
aborting now. You need to make sure
that /usr/lib64/chromium/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and
has mode 4755. Aborted

I have:
l /usr/lib64/chromium/chrome-sandbox

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 Sep 23 11:43
-> ../../lib/chrome_sandbox*
I believe 4755 would be -rwsr-xr-x

Your's failing and my succeeding I would not think indicates a
packaging error, but perhaps changing your perms will allow
install. It would really be simple to try:
chmod 777 /usr/lib64/chromium/chrome-sandbox

then try the update and see if the script still fails.

the chmod is incorrect, it should be as the error reported, I
imagine. I don't know why my link has the incorrect mode but it
does work and I didn't change it, ever. /usr/lib/chrome_sandbox
which the link points is indeed 4755.

Someone with a better understanding the me will have to advise

Thanks again for the feedback, Patrick. We were thinking along the
same lines. I ultimately ran chmod 4755 on /usr/lib/chrome_sandbox
and chromium launches ... it complains about not being able to
connect to kwallet, though.

For this you should open a bugreport.

(As 12.3 gets the factory chromium it might have changes that are not
mirrored in permissions.)

Ciao, Marcus
