Interestingly the GUI Package Updater (at least in a couple instances) does not give that option, just fails
The work around that was to open YAST, Software Management, search for xdas to find the instrument. Right click on edirectory-oes-xdas-instrument and select delete. Leave the others in place, as that logging is somehow still a dependency for eDirectory, at least at this point. Click Apply and then Finish.
Return to Package Updater (Under System Tools) and patch as normal.
