Have you considered downloading them from the Net and then reinstalling them?
Does YaST list them? Perhaps you can untick, then tick them and let the CD's
restore their existence.

You must reinstall from the CD's again. There is no going back, but there
/is/ going forward, even if it means the unavailability is needed modules. I
am very surprised this happened though. The updates should be additive.

I imagine Xavier that is referring to YaST Online Updates (YOU), which are
advised at the very start. YOU is launched automatically on a newly-set up
machine and recommends patching of various components.
Last time I followed YOU it was in SuSE 9.3 when it borked KDM and KDE
startup on subsequent reboots. It was definitely not worth it.
