Thread: No Active Update Repository Available

    Default No Active Update Repository Available

    Hi there --

    I just completed updating 10.2 to 11.1, and I am going through the motions of running an on-line update for the operating system. I started yast2, and I clicked on Online Update. The error message that I am seeing is the following:

    No active update repository available. Exit online update?

    I checked the configured software repositories for the system, and here is what is listed:

    Index of /debug/distribution/11.1/repo/oss
    http://download.opensuse.org/11.1/repo/non-oss/
    http://download.opensuse.org/11.1/repo/oss/
    Index of /source/distribution/11.1/repo/oss

    The above sites are all set to a priority of 99 (default), and all have enabled and autorefresh configured for them.

    Is there anything else that should be configured, or are all packages and their affiliated files truly up-to-date?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure if it works like that but when upgradng You get updated packages from DVD right? Updates are taken from separate repo, if anyone could correct me but OSS doesn't get any updates at all, and aren't all OSS packages basically the same as in the DVD?

    Just suggesting one possibility, verify you have an active and healthy network connection.

    Eg. If you have one network interface but Yast is reporting 2 (typically, one configured for DHCP and another unconfigured), you need to delete the DHCP configuration (because it has become unbound) and configure the unconfigured for DHCP (because that is now bound to the physical interface).

    HTH...

    Hi there --

    Thanks for your reply. I went through the motions of adding the update repository to the list, and removed the four existing ones so currently the only thing in the list is the update repository.

    Besides the update URL, are there any other sitesthat should be on the list? Thanks.

    I would definitely keep OSS and non-OSS (say you remove something and want it back later?), add Packman, add Nvidia, add Videolan (temporarily, just to install libdvdcss and then immediately remove that repo) . That is all in my case.

    Later if You want a package that is not in those repos search for it on " Software.openSUSE.org " . And add accordingly.
