    Exclamation Repository Issues in middle of Upgrade

    Decided today is the day to do the network upgrade of my 11.3 to 11.4...YAY! One small problem: The repository has stopped responding, right in the middle of the install!

    Anyone have any ideas on how to recover, or should I just wait it out?

    Thumbs up Re: Repository Issues in middle of Upgrade

    Issue resolved; after waiting about an hour, it started downloading again, whew!

    Here's to a smooth rest of the install!

    It is really hard to know every problem that might occur and repositories and even the openSUSE forums can go down. However, all things being equal, I am thinking if you waited over an hour, and your connection is not dialup, the install may have failed in some way. Now I don't know how fast your connection might be, but if it is really slow, then perhaps waiting is OK, but I would expect to see some disk activity anyway.

    Default Re: Repository Issues in middle of Upgrade

    I was getting CURL errors, strangely enough: User Abort!

    All fixed now though!
