    That's a text file that defines the packages you want installed... You probably had the package manager open and selected open from file... Just click on the file you want instead of trying to take that route or use the Yast modules to install it.

    user.sel file is a file that when you have chosen your favorite packages in yast ; install and remove software . and have installed them ,by choosing export from the yast menu will be created.you can use this fle the next time you want to install the same packages after reinstaliing suse.(import)
