I think the most people complain in this particular case is this bug:

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=731450 (zypper: can't kill
packagekit)

Solving this, everyone will be happy ;-)

no, maybe most, but not everyone....that block is one problem yes...but it is the easiest for the new user to deal with....because even if s/he does nothing eventually the block will just go away..

and, no matter what they try to unblock they won't be able to kill their system until it is unblocked..

the much more difficult to help a new user with comes from the combo of lots of 1-Click Installs, giving lots of various repos enabled (by default) coupled with a new user _conditioned_ by their former OS to 'trust' the software to 'know' how to update/upgrade/patch correctly, and just they just click yes to whatever they are offered and thereby spin the cylinder, point apper/packagekit at their system and pull the trigger!

and when told to disable packagekit/apper they ask: Why was it included?
