Stop regionsrv-enabler-azure.timer, then update to the latest cloud-regionsrv-client* packages available:

systemctl stop regionsrv-enabler-azure.timer
SUSEConnect -r <regcode>
SUSEConnect -p sle-module-public-cloud/15.3/x86_64
zypper update cloud-regionsrv-client cloud-regionsrv-client-addon-azure cloud-regionsrv-client-plugin-azure
systemctl start regionsrv-enabler-azure.timer

Note: Minimum required version of cloud-regionsrv-client-addon-azure is 1.0.4-150000.6.70.1

Other known workarounds are:
- Stop and disable the timer regionsrv-enabler-azure.timer
- Remove all cloud-regionsrv-client* addon-azure* packages


There was a bug in the addon logic that was responsible for removing repositories when they should not have been removed.
