Thread: Refresh Failed re: repositories

  1. #1

    Default Refresh Failed re: repositories

    Opensuse 11.0 KDE 3.59

    I am getting this error when I try to do updates, either thru Yast> Online Updates or when I click on the Yellow triangle at bottom right of my screen:

    Refresh failed: Error: Could not refresh repository 'Main Repository (OSS)': Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s) History: - File '/content' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.0/repo/oss'

    I have searched in Google and in this forum, but cannot find anything about it.
    I have gone into the repositories and deleted them and reinstalled them, but it does not change any thing. The triangle stays yellow and I am not able to do updates. I don't have a lot of repositories enabled, only some from the List of online repositories: Main [Updates], Main [OSS], Main[Non-OSS], Packman.

    Any ideas what I should do?

    Normally resolves itself - could just be the repo updating... Wait two or three days, if no joy then, start taking measures.

    I will wait and watch for a bit.
    What would the 'measures' I would be taking if it doesn't clear up on its own?
