    Unhappy Can't use updates. Problem with connection

    Hi,
    I've got OS 11.3 and updates via yast dosen't working. Provided repositories URL are correct. When I try to refresh package list (i.e. when lunching software managment) it's returns me error Unable to connect to url ...../repodata/repomd.xml
    URL is correct. I was looking for solution on the web and I found some footprints but no one guid me to solve it.

    This issuse occure on 2 diffrent netwroks (diffrent ISP).
    Network connection is established correct.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    jbeynar

    Are you saying you can browse the net?

    Open a terminal and type: su -
    (hit enter)
    type your password..

    Type this: zypper up
    (what happens)

    If it fails, type this: zypper lr -d

    Networking is working. I can download files from Index of /distribution/11.3/repo/oss with wget, but I can't find repodata there at all. I think problems started at Saturday.

    Repo config is default (freshly installed 11.3), except DVD repo, which is disabled.

    I think problems started at Saturday, but I am not sure. I installed 11.3 in the morning and everything seemed ok, however later I decided to change partition layout drastically and did reinstall. Problems with repos showed then.

    Is the type for OSS repo correct?

    Solved by removing and adding OSS repo. Now the type is yast2 and everything works. The question is why it had "rpm-md" type in the beginning?
