Thread: Problems updating or dowloading certain softfware openSUSE 11.4

    Default Problems updating or dowloading certain softfware openSUSE 11.4

    This is my first post so apologies if it's in the wrong section

    I'm not a Linux expert but have been using Suse since version 9.0. I installed opensuse 11.4 about two weeks ago and this time I reformatted my hard drive and did a fresh install. The installation appeared to go through OK without any problems. I ran the updates during the installation process which again was successful. The problems I have experienced have been trying to install either acroread, vlc or the restricted formats either through one click install or manually. Software manager always hangs on downloading either, acroread, vlc-Nox, or in thr case of one click install Ladspa. It's always the same files and the same place. I'm now getting the same problems with updates, either using yast online update, KPackageKit or booting into failsafe and trying to update or download from there.

    I've reinstalled the system several times and still had the same problems every time, the same files hanging in the same place. I even tried installing from a different DVD(from a magazine rather than my downloaded one) but got the same problem.

    The error I get is like this for the update

    Cannot access installation media http://downloadopen suse .org/update/11.4/updates for openSUSE 11.4 11.4-0 (Medium1)
    Check whether the server is accessible

    Timeout exceeded when accessing 'http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.4/rpm/i586/sane-backends-1.0.22-1.3.3_1.5.1.i586.delta.rpm'.

    I get the same when trying to install acroread, vlc, or the restricted formats but it obviously points to the appropriate repo. I've even tried changing mirrors but still get the same problem with exactly the same files at the same point. Other programs can be downloaded through the software manager without any problem such as audacity, chkrootkit, aide.

    the output from zypper lr -d is

    7 | repo-source | openSUSE-11.4-Source | No | Yes | 99 | NONE | Index of /source/distribution/11.4/repo/oss |


    I've been struggling with this for about two weeks now and never had any problem of it's kind before with openSuse. Version 11.3 updates and downloads software with no problem on this PC and I've just tried Ubuntu and that installs and updates with no errors as well. I don't think this is an ISP problem regarding file sizes etc as I can download the DVD images.

    Can anyone help me please and is anyone else experiencing this problem? I've trawled the forums but can't find this problem elsewhere. I always been able to fathom out any problems I've had with previous releases but this one has got me. Again apologies if this is posted in the wrong section or this problem has been posted before.

    Many thanks

    Tony

    I've also just tried online update again and that's not working either, still hangs in same place as before. I've tried refresh before but doesn't seem to make a difference.

    You are ok now. Maybe a problem with connection you had.

    Hi Stamos,

    I probably wasn't very clear with my last answer. I still have the same problem. Downloads and updates do not work. I don't think it's a connection problem as I can download from other sites using the browser. It's just updating opensuse ans installing new packages where the problem is.

    Yes, I've tried different mirrors several times but always fails at same point on same files. Not using proxy, not in campus.
    What I don't get it only happens on 11.4, and it will update ok during the install process. It only seems to be certain files that are not downloading as many will download with no problem.

    Not sure.
    You could disable all repos except the DVD, you used the DVD?

    Then make a local repo of the current Update repo
    That would let you update to current level

    Then try again
