I've read the thread on digikam-users and while I'm not entirely sure where 
the problem lies, my money is on your system having a cocktail of packages 
from incompatible repositories.

KDE:UpdatedApps just contains applications, not the platform.

KDE:Release:4x contains the KDE platform and the applications.  

You say you are running 4.7.2 which implies you are using KDE:Release:47, but 
you also say that you upgraded (digikam?) from KDE:UpdatedApps, which is not 
built vs KR47.  You should just be using the digikam and the rest of KDE from 
KR47 and unregister the KDE:UpdatedApps repo.  

Then make sure any packages which came from KDE:UpdateApps are replaced with 
their KR47 versions, even if this means a version downgrade.  To find these:

rpm -qa --queryformat "%-30{NAME}%{DISTRIBUTION}\n"|grep UpdatedApps

Then use the version selector in Yast's package manager to select the corect
