    Default Zypper Update/Installation-Problems

    Hello all,

    Often when I try to update or install software on my OpenSuSE 11.0-system with zypper, I get the following error:

    Code:
    Problem downloading the package file from the repository:
    
    Can't provide ./rpm/i586/libpulse0-0.9.10-26.5.i586.rpm : Can't copy /var/adm/mount/AP_0x00000001/rpm/i586/libpulse0-0.9.10-26.5.i586.rpm to /var/cache/zypp/packages/openSUSE-11.0-Updates
    Repository 'openSUSE-11.0-Updates' is out of date. Running 'zypper refresh' might help.
    It's not still the "libpulse0"-rpm, which can't be installed. I already have refreshed the zypper-repositories (zypper ref).
    I'm successful getting the failed RPM with wget.

    I have installed this repositories:
    # | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh
    --+-----------------------+-----------------------+---------+--------
    1 | openSUSE-DVD 11.0 | openSUSE-DVD 11.0 | Yes | No
    2 | openSUSE-11.0-Updates | Updates for 11.0 | Yes | Yes
    3 | NVIDIA | NVIDIA | Yes | Yes
    4 | VLC | VLC | Yes | Yes
    5 | repo-oss | openSUSE-11.0-Oss | Yes | Yes
    6 | NVIDIA Repository | NVIDIA Repository | Yes | Yes
    7 | Packman | Packman | Yes | Yes
    8 | repo-non-oss | openSUSE-11.0-Non-Oss | Yes | Yes
    9 | repo-debug | openSUSE-11.0-Debug | No | No

    Thanks a lot for your help.
    Kind regards,
    T.

    I would guess that you either lost your connection to the repository or the package does not exist at the repository. Does the error recur after 'zypper refresh'?

    The package exists on the OpenSuSE-update-server.
    The error still recurs after a "zypper refresh".

    I have the same problem as I already posted some days ago :Problem with "zypper dup" - openSUSE Forums.

    It's really bothering. Also if I choose a package to install in Yast I have to accept several times till it's installed definitively...

    any hints?

    maybe try to use a local mirror for the main repositories ?

    See this previous post : PackageKit with Smart - openSUSE Forums

    The problem is well know, and some work are done actually : See Libzypp/Failover - openSUSE

    Solved!

    The Education-Repository must be added:
    Index of /repositories/Education/openSUSE_11.0

    I was having a problem with the libpulse0 package as well until I went int Yast and noticed that somehow there was a lock on a related file. I removed the lock in Yast and then it updated fine. Don't know what caused the file to be locked in the first place.

    I found the file by doing a search in Yast Software Management for libpulse. I noticed the one file was locked (sorry, I don't remember exactly which file it was), so I unlocked it and the upgrade went through.

    Don't know if this will help your problem, but thought I might chime in here in case it did.

    In the meantime it looks like I solved my problem. As Spyhawk suggested and boenis solved his problem.

    First I didn't understand what I have exactly to do following solution guide. Therefore a closer explanation for those still haven't understood.

    The matter is, sometimes (or very often) the connection to the main repo is broken. The solution is to add a mirror instead of the main server. The zypper told you to which repository the connection failed. Mainly are this "oss", "non-oss", "debug" and "update".

    Under the following link you can choose a near or trusted mirror: Mirrors Released Version - openSUSE
    Hint: Choose a mirror of Point 1.x with the complete archive

    That gave you the following urls to the repositories on the mirror:
    "http://ChoseMirror/opensuse/distribution/11.0/repo/oss"
    "http://ChoseMirror/opensuse/distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss"
    "http://ChoseMirror/opensuse/distribution/11.0/repo/debug"
    "http://ChoseMirror/opensuse/update/11.0/"

    e.g. I chose the mirror of switzerland and got following urls:
    "http:///mirror.switch.ch/ftp/mirror/opensuse/distribution/11.0/repo/oss"
    "http:///mirror.switch.ch/ftp/mirror/opensuse/distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss"
    "http:///mirror.switch.ch/ftp/mirror/opensuse/distribution/11.0/repo/debug"
    "http:///mirror.switch.ch/ftp/mirror/opensuse/update/11.0/"

    Now replace the urls of the repositories with the new one. For that open yast2. Under Software choose Software Repositories. In the opening window replace the url of "oss", "non-oss", "debug" and "update". High light the specific repositories, click the edit button, choose the option "Edit Complete URL" and paste the matching url you collected before. After you did it for all 4 main repo, click the refresh button and choose the option"Refresh all Enabled". Last steps are push the finish button.

    If your are using the opensuse updater applet, you to restart it.
