    How are you trying to update?

    The GUI should have asked you for the admin password.

    You can do it easier from a terminal, try these 2 commands:

    sudo zypper refresh
    sudo zypper up

    It will ask for the root password.

    If you loaded your graphical desktop through the CLI or terminal, this problem may happen. I've had the same thing happen multiple times. Restarting and tryin again should solve the problem. If you cannot reboot because the options are grayed-out, open a terminal, login as root with the su command and the root password, and then enter the command reboot. When OpenSUSE reboots, log back in and try to update again.

    Hope this helps.

    Sorry, I worded that wrong.

    I meant to reboot and login as a normal user and then try again.

    Sometimes if you booted into OpenSUSE through the CLI or used the CLI while logged in, this problem may occur.

    Again, sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Try deleting and re-adding the repository in YaST Software Repositories. The correct url is:

    Index of /update/11.0

    We need more information, as complete and precise a description as possible. Also, might get more attention if you opened a new thread . . .

    I am also having the same issue.

    I tried:

    sudo zypper refresh
    sudo zypper up

    However it says the following:

    A Zypp transaction is already in progress. This means, there is another application using the libzypp libary for package management running. All such applications must be closed before using this command.
    I am assuming it is the PackageKit Update applet. So if anyone knows how ot shut that down so I can run the zypper commands please let me know.
