Thread: Unable to do online updates

    Default Unable to do online updates

    It appears I have gotten a bug when I try to update 11.0 or download even a update foe firefox. When I tried to see if there were any updates it said it could not do it and put up a screen stating the following. File'/repodata/repomd.xml/' not found on medium "http://download.openSUSE.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.01/'. Is there a way to fix this problem? Thanks in advance for your help. I am a 66year old quy who is trying to learn the ins and outs of Lenox so please keep it simple.

    simple: openSUSE 11.0 is no longer supported...there are no repos from
    which to find any updates...so, you will keep getting that error until
    the cows come home..

    suggest you consider upgrading to 11.1, 11.2 or 11.3 (but 11.1 goes
    unsupported soon, so . . .)

    btw, it is spelt Linux...otoh, Lenox is some kind of cheap but
    overpriced tableware and gift stuff...yep, check it out:

    11.0 is beyond its support date. So there are no new updates being made available.

    You might already be as up-to-date as you can ever be with 11.0

    You might want to think about moving to 11.3

    I have the 11.3 cd that can also be run off the cd/dvd player. Can that one be installed over my 11.0 so I do not have to start over and if so how do I do it when I am running a duo boot system? Old age strikes again when I can't even get linux right.

    I think you can just upgrade. But perhaps you should wait for somebody else to confirm.

    Personally, I always do a fresh install, except that I preserve my old "/home" (which is a separate partition).

    The dual boot shouldn't be a problem. My system is dual boot, and going from 11.0 to 11.3 did not cause any problems. It will be set to boot linux by default after the upgrade, but you can change that back if you prefer a different default.
