It seems it is not possible to install the latest official release of

Zypper and YaST tell me that this is because seamonkey-2.48-1.3.x86_64
requires mozilla-nspr >= 4.15, whereas
java-1_8_0-openjdk-headless- requires
mozilla-nss = 3.28.5.

Is this really the correct message? I do not see a correlation between
mozilla-nspr and mozilla-nss like described above.

I think what you see is the outfall of

In the current situation you can only ignore the Java<->NSS dependency and
update NSS as required by Seamonkey (or any other package from mozilla).
Your probability that Java still works is 99% anyway.

in addition you could also add my home repo which I use to rebuild all
java-1_8_0-openjdk packages against Wolfgang's mozilla repo. This way I
can always use the latest mozilla packages.

I do this for openSUSE_Leap_42.2 and _42.3; add the repo as follows:

zypper ar home:mhnovell:Rebuilds:openSUSE_Leap_42.2 java4mozilla
zypper ar home:mhnovell:Rebuilds:openSUSE_Leap_42.3 java4mozilla


HTH, cheers.
