Thread: Invalid repository

  1. #1

    Default Invalid repository

    Hello, Recently installed openSUSE 11.1
    On the automatic update, or whenever I use zypper
    I get the following message

    Retrieving repository 'home:RedDwarf:fakePackman' metadata [error]
    Repository 'home:RedDwarf:fakePackman' is invalid.
    [|] Repository type can't be determined.
    Please check if the URIs defined for this repository are pointing to a valid repository.
    Warning: Disabling repository 'home:RedDwarf:fakePackman' because of the above error.
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...

    This also stops me from getting any updates.

    googling it did not yield much.
    Any ideas?

    Default Re: Invalid repository

    From the error message, it appears you have added a Packman repository which is not valid. Try going to YaST Software Repositories and disabling that repository, or possibly deleting it altogether. I also seem to recall that there was an issue with the updates repository in 11.1 at release (later patched); again in the Repositories module, make sure an automatic updates repo is there and try renaming it to "Main Update Repository" and saving that. Then run Automatic Updates from YaST.
