Sorry to omit the the subject. It should have been "Snapshot 20171003
unresolved dependency."
The other two solutions are:
Solution 2: deinstallation of perl-DateTime-Format-ISO8601-0.08-1.13.noarch
Solution 3: break yast2-apparmor-4.0.0-1.2.noarch by ignoring some of
its dependencies
Which are the usual ones.

It may be the mirror is not up to date it has been 7+ hours since
snapshot 20171003 was announced.
Usually I wait like 4+ hours.
Perhaps Mirrorbrain is sending me to a mirror that is off in the weeds.
I think waiting might be the best option.

I am seeing this error trying to update to the latest snapshot.

"Problem: yast2-apparmor-4.0.0-1.2.noarch requires
perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.26.1), but this requirement cannot be provided
uninstallable providers: perl-5.26.1-1.2.i586[openSUSE-20170120-0]

Then lists a bunch of obsolete packagers it will keep if I go with
solution (1)
Is it a problem with my machine or should I go with solution (2) or (3)?

please provide a Subject when posting.

perhaps the mirror you are accessing has not yet updated. when I see this
I opt to keep the obsolete package until an update provides proper
replacements. I cannot tell you whether to opt for (2) or (3) as I cannot
see them on your screen....

zypper se -s provides me:
i+ | perl | package | 5.26.1-1.2 | x86_64 | openSUSE-Tumbleweed

looks like you have a mirror problem. I would keep the obsolete packages
until you are able to get the necessary ones.

or go to a mirror which has the files and download and install them.

This is interesting. I just did a zypper dup on the wife's machine it
encountered no difficulties.
Not a complaint. I then went to another machine and did a zypper dup
same dependency problem as this one.
Choosing to keep the package (solution 1) resorts in all kinds of
dependency ugliness all based around perl and core packages.
I think I'll stay out of the weeds and stay on the beaten path.
Thank you for your help Patrick.

One would think Mirrorbrain could check mirrors for sanity before
sending you there.
I don't think one should have to go scaring up a mirror in your
country that will work and isn't a lot
of help.
When I went looking my eyes glazed over with different time and even
dates given on the directories.

Apply appropriate technology. Use what works without prejudice.
