5 packages to upgrade, 13 new, 6 to remove.

Where do these new applications or new packages come from or why do
they want to become installed?

I dont even have any other packages installed named anything with kam but
rpm -aq | grep -i kam

How does this work? I am trying to understand this suse packaging and
software management especially with gold opensuse systems that have
come a long way and had been constantly upgraded over time. Maybe a
lot of crust and worthless stuff has amassed and left on this system
and I definitely need to clean stuff up and get things back into

System is
cat /etc/os-release
NAME="openSUSE Leap"
PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE Leap 42.1 (x86_64)"
I noticed this also on Leap, when doing a "zypper up --no-recommends". have a customized install with a lot of patterns I deselected at install time. You can mark those packages as taboo (digiKam and Shofoto) and the problem should go away, but regardless, this should not happen. Tumbleweed does not exhibit the same behaviour, just fyi, with the same type of cherry-picked install. So maybe it's a bug in zypper or libsolv somewhere. From what I could tell on my test Leap install, the removal of libkexiv2-11 triggered the installation of all those unneccessary packages, except on my machine it was digiKam and a bunch of other dependencies which went along with it.
