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.


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':

<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

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

# cat /usr/share/appdata/dconf-editor.appdata.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<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

<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.
