Well, post the zypper output that I asked, that would show which versions 
exactly you have installed (and from where), and what is actually available.

That the version is marked in red means that it's not available in the 
configured repos (anymore).

It probably is a left-over from previous Leap versions if you upgraded, but 
you should be able to safely uninstall libopenshot13 as nothing should use it 
anymore. (the openshot-qt package in Leap 15.0 uses libopenshot14)

And/or maybe openshot-qt and libopenshot were indeed available in Packman for 
15.0 as well, but have been removed meanwhile (as it is included in the 
standard repos anyway).

As I found out meanwhile, the OP likely uses Leap 42.3 though, where openshot-
qt and libopenshot were not included in the distribution yet and only 
available from Packman.
Probably the openshot-qt 2.4.4 version (that needs a newer libopenshot) 
slipped in by mistake.

But: Leap 42.3 was end-of-life 4 months ago and is no longer supported:

So the advice would be to upgrade to a supported version. (preferably 15.1, as 
15.0 will be EOL in a few weeks as well)

Otherwise, the only option would be to stick to the older openshot-qt 2.4.2, 
which is still in the repo as well. Maybe lock the package to not update it 

Kind Regards,
