A user has reported problems at openSUSE forums:
In attempting to reproduce his problem, I created an install USB. This went fine with both UEFI booting and with Legacy booting.
Next, with legacy booting, I used the F4 key on the boot screen, and told it to search "/dev/sdb" for the install source. And that gave an installer internal error.
I will attach a screen shot and install logs.

Yast logs for the install
Maybe the source device name is wrong or have to be specified in other way but at least we should not crash when no repository source is found so adding it to the incoming board
That's a bug in gfxboot; it creates a broken installation source URL:
should be instead:
Or even better:
Independent of this, yast should probably also not crash here.
