    If I do a

    zypper ref;zypper up
    , I get a .
    Are you by any chance using a proxy? I had problem too accessing that url behind my proxy.

    And this url should be put up somewhere instead of hiding in a forum post. There is not such a url on google's page at least.

    No, no proxy. The thing is, even if I had been using a proxy, I've been using that repository for years without any problem.

    Post Re: Google Chrome repository

    I just did a sudo zypper ref, and google-chrome repo updated with no errors or delays.

    Here is my repo:

    Code:
    harry@intrepid:~> zypper lr -Pd

    Note the different URL.

    Sorry for the poor formatting; this is actually my first post here on the openSUSE forums!

    Hope this helps.

    Well, I found out what the problem actually was for me.
    After trying your suggestion, hhtoigo, which didn't work by the way,
    something started niggling at the back of my neck. I can't remember
    when, or why exactly, I did this, but the problem was an entry in
    my /etc/hosts file for dl.google.com. I proceeded to remove the entry in
    the /etc/hosts file, then put the original URL for the chrome entry in
    Software Repositories in YAST, zypper ref, zypper up, and chrome updated.
    My bad.
    I also tried the URL you suggested hhtoigo after I fixed the /etc/hosts file, but
    that didn't work for me.
    So, to sum it up: always note the changes you have made to your system,
    and keep them up to date.
    For me, this is solved.

    The link I posted above, and the one I have in my repository list is with https:// , not http://
    And just a few seconds ago, on a try of "refresh" worked OK (in yast2, "Software repositories" app).
    Could you try again, with this change ?
    I mean, this: https://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64
    I have no problem with, just now.

    Mine originally (from chrome's own setup) was http:. For completeness-sake, I modified the entry through YAST, and refreshed. It worked as well. So, everything is working still.

    Ha-Joon: Ah, a rogue /etc/hosts entry! That will certainly do it. How often I have run into the same situation, having neglected in the heat of the moment to document in my captains-log a change I made to my system, and then forgetting all about it. Glad you found the issue and got it working.

    I did some more testing here, and noticed something interesting (to me, at least). Modifying the URI of the google-chrome repo to any one of the following seems to work:



    I set the URI of the chrome repo to each of the above addresses in turn, did a sudo zypper ref, and then a zypper search --repo google-chrome. In each case, the output was exactly the same:

    Code:
    S | Name                   | Summary                  | Type   
    --+------------------------+--------------------------+--------
      | google-chrome-beta     | Google Chrome (beta)     | package
    i | google-chrome-stable   | Google Chrome            | package
      | google-chrome-unstable | Google Chrome (unstable) | package
    Cheers,

    Harry Toigo
