While trying to perform installation via vnc, without activation of online repositories, package xorg-x11 is not available. 

As a result, after the remote installation, xvnc is not active.

Attached there is a screenshot of installation overview, displaying the error message and save_y2logs.

from installation logs:

YaST2/y2log:2020-10-08 08:21:18 <1> install(7008) [Pkg] Package.cc(PkgQueryProvides):132 Searching packages providing: xorg-x11
YaST2/y2log:2020-10-08 08:21:18 <3> install(7008) [Ruby] modules/Packages.rb(block in find_providers):2454 Provider not found for 'xorg-x11'

after installation xorg-x11 package is not installed if online repositories are disabled. On the contrary, if online repositories are enabled, xorg-x11 is installed.

That's an issue of YaST / the installer.

xorg-x11 is an empty package. It's pure presence means nothing - except YaST wrongly checking for it.

In latest build of SLE-15-SP4, the service is inactive again:
and the softfailed is triggered again:
my $xvnc_inactive = systemctl "is-active xvnc.socket", ignore_failure => 1;
    if ($xvnc_inactive) {
        record_soft_failure "bsc#1177485";
Any recent changes that could cause this?

I stopped the VM to get logs, but apparently we don't wait enough to see it active in the automation, because manually is active.
