I tried to 'zypper dup' from openSUSE Tumbleweed 20230508 to current (20230510):
Computing distribution upgrade... 2 Problems: Problem: problem with the installed libsox3-14.4.2-1599.7.pm.137.x86_64 Problem: problem with the installed sox-14.4.2-1599.7.pm.137.x86_64
Problem: problem with the installed libsox3-14.4.2-1599.7.pm.137.x86_64 Solution 1: install libsox3-14.4.2-6.1.x86_64 from vendor openSUSE replacing libsox3-14.4.2-1599.7.pm.137.x86_64 from vendor http://packman.links2linux.de Solution 2: keep obsolete libsox3-14.4.2-1599.7.pm.137.x86_64

I see the same and it is your choice which to do. I prefer packman versions, so I choose to wait for packman to update "solution 2". sometimes it takes a day or three.
you loose nothing by waiting. the reason I prefer packman here is due to restrictions on video and audio due to copyrites.
Ah, thanks. I'm glad I asked. I was assuming the obvious thing was to let the vendor change.
It is. sox for Tumbleweed does not exist in Packman, nor does it exist in PBS. The package was not changed for several years, and the reason it suddenly springs out is that spec file was cleaned up in Tumbleweed.
