Should be fixed meanwhile.

But for some reason, the updated vlc packages are actually "downgrades" 
currently, they're at version 3.0.2-lp150.3.5.1 now while before it was 3.0.2-
So you may need to reinstall them manually. E.g. mark the package(s) in YaST-
>Software Management and choose "Update Unconditionally", or run "sudo zypper 
in -f vlc vlc-codecs" and allow the downgrades (maybe add vlc-codec-gstreamer, 
vlc-vdpau and vlc-lang too if you have any of those installed, but it probably 
wouldn't matter much anyway).

Kind Regards,
