I think something is wrong in the package or repository metadata. But I have
to admit I don't really understand what "applications" are supposed to be in
libzypp context.

See: https://wiki.gnome.org/Initiatives/GnomeGoals/AppDataGnomeSoftware

It looks like we have trouble getting consistent data. My repos are Tumbleweed,
but they suffer the same problem.

The appdata.xml.gz file in the repository claims that dconf-0.22.0 will provide
an application named 'dconf Editor':

<application>
<name>dconf Editor</name>
...
<id type="desktop">ca.desrt.dconf-editor.desktop</id>

After installation however the installed ca.desrt.dconf-editor.appdata.xml
defines no more <name>, so the installed application is named after the file
'ca.desrt.dconf-editor.appdata':

# rpm -qf /usr/share/appdata/ca.desrt.dconf-editor.appdata.xml
dconf-0.22.0-2.1.x86_64

# cat /usr/share/appdata/dconf-editor.appdata.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<application>
<id type="desktop">ca.desrt.dconf-editor.desktop</id>
... defines no <name>


Similar for xfce4-power-manager. The installed
/usr/share/appdata/xfce4-power-manager.appdata.xml defines an application
named:

<name>Xfce power manager</name>

The appdata.xml.gz file in the repository however list no application being
acssociated with xfce4-power-manager.


The inconsistent repo metadata make the resolver assume, that
updateing/reinstalling 'dconf' and 'xfce4-power-manager' will remove the
requested applications.
