yast by itself starts other modules, and probably blocks the output of those.
Try to start the modules directly:
In text mode do 'yast --list', and pick one of the modules you wish to run
(probably sw_single to install/remove pkgs or online_update for YOU).
IIR, you will get error messages this way.
