Thread: Repository kupdate error - Valid metadata not found

    Default Repository kupdate error - Valid metadata not found

    I'm getting a kupdateapplet message which says

    Code:
    repo-non-oss: [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
    repo-oss: [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
    repo-update: [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
    repo_1: [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
    Is this because there is a problem on these servers?

    I recently added a repo to help me solve a bluetooth problem I'm having.

    Index of /repositories/home:/seife/openSUSE_Factory

    I started to install some bluetooth packages as recommended in a comment in this bug https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=438956, but the packages were no longer there so I didn't use the repo again. I disabled it and later removed it altogether. I hope it didn't cause the problem.

    Later, I installed some gnome bluez packages and attempted to use them. I pressed alt-F2 twice (using Bluetooth not working After installing openSUSE 11.1 - Page 3 - openSUSE Forums as a reference) which caused my machine to lock up with the drive light on. The drive light eventually went off and I hard booted the machine after attempting to ctrl-alt-backspace twice (several times) and then alt-sysreq-REISUB several times to no avail.

    I need to download some other gnome/bluetooth packages which I didn't before, but now I have the repository problem. Since I'm not seeing any news about SUSE servers offline, I expect it must be something about my machine which I need to recover. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thumbs down Re: Repository kupdate error - Valid metadata not found

    Sorry- I am encountering the same problem!

    Did you find a solution?
    It is quite frustrating. I did not encounter this in Opensuse 11.0
    I am running Opensuse 11.1 x64.
    I am wondering if this a NIC driver problem? My connection was much faster in OS 11.0.

    The problem did not continue and appeared to go away by itself. The next day I refreshed the repositories and downloaded the packages I needed.

    I did remove the extra repository I had added.
