    Thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately it didn't work this time. I'm still receiving the same annoying message.

    Anything else I can try...

    You can try to add a repository with zypper. e.g.:
    Code:
     zypper ar http://bla.bla anyname
    If it fails there should at least be some useful output. Maybe you can also rebuild the zypper database but I don't know if or how this may work. Good luck!

    Unhappy Re: Problem @ repositories configuration

    This is the list of repos I have for now:




    I guess I managed to locate the problem...

    I have disabled the repos I don't want to use anymore and have tried to delete them, but everytime I try to delete them, I got the window posted @ the 1st. post.

    However yast is allowing me to add more repos, the only problem are those stubborn repos (the ones highlighted).

    When I try to delete them, the warning window appears.

    Is there an alternative way to get rid of them not using YaST2 ???

    Open a terminal and you may as well become su and do:

    Code:
    zypper lr
    In that note the alias for the repo's you want to delete

    then:

    Code:
    zypper rr (alias)
    eg:
    Code:
    zypper rr videolan-vlc
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    You can use zypper. You'll need to be root first. To list repos (by number, alia, and url):

    zypper lr --details

    Now, say you have a repo #9 that you wish to remove. Then you can do:

    zypper rr 9

    @deano_ferrari
    I'm not sure 10.3 supports all the zypper commands eg: --details
    I seem to recall someone else having trouble with this, but I may be wrong?!
