This is the exact message i'm getting:

"vlc-noX-2.2.1-305.1.x86_64 requires libmatroska.so.6(V_1.4.1)(64bit), 
but this requirement cannot be provided"

It looks to me like the vlc-noX package requires specifically v1.4.1 of 
The update from openSUSE repo is to update to v1.4.4.

According to Olaf's email a couple of minutes before yours, it's just a 
matter of time and it'll get addressed.
