Impossible to Install VMware Player 16.1.2

Hi everybody,

I have a serious issue when I try to install the new VMware Player 16.1.2 this morning.

The installer uninstall my 16.1.1 version then try to install the new and fail... Just with this message :

 

Extracting VMware Installer...done.

Installation was unsuccessful.

 

I'm running OpenSuse Tumbleweed ...

Seems to "stop" the process on installing the USB arbitrator ... I don't know "who is" this USB Arbitrator....

Do you have any idea ?

Actually I'm in pain because the previous VM was uninstalled by installator...

Waiting for your answers and thank you in advance

As for "any idea", I'm not an expert on Suse, but this feels like there are orphan packages or mismatch in dependencies that need to be fixed on Linux level.

For the first one, the following link might directly help. For the latter, I'm not sure how to automatically fix mismatched dependencies in Suse, but if you can guess package names, removing packages becomes doable.
