Thread: Unable to DL RPM's from update repositorys

  1. #1

    Default Unable to DL RPM's from update repositorys

    I cannot download the timezone RPM(and other RPM's) from several repositories(I haven't found ANY that will allow me to DL the timezone RPM's and I have checked 8 so far!)
    This breaks the update as it will stall on any of the undownloadable(new word for O.E.D. undownloadable) RPM's

    This was noted in the thread Yast vs system tray. But as it's not related to the topic of the post I thought I would make a new thread.

    Puzzled Penguin and I have had the same issue.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    In the terminal, can you post the result of this command :

    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    No, post the download attempt with wget. zypper is not the issue here.

    I understand the download stalls, not that you get a bad file; and it
    happens only with some rpm files regardless of download method and mirror
    used. Someone said it worked in failsafe mode.

    I also understand that there are several people with this problem in 11.4:
    please all of them add to this thread, don't disperse the efforts in
    several threads. Say who is your ISP, and network configuration, let us
    find concidences.


    Please post the result of a failed attempt with wget, CLI. And then retry
    in failsafe mode, too.


    Try aria2c with a metalink:

    > http://download.opensuse.org/update/...elta.rpm.meta4 (IETF Metalink)


    (obtained from
    http://download.opensuse.org/update/...rpm.mirrorlist)


    If there are several reports confirming ALL this, we can open a bugzilla
    and try to get attention from the developers.

    Ok, I booted into failsafe and was able to use zypper to get the updates. I had to re-boot twice and enter failsafe as YAST etc would always fail during the download phase(but only on some RPM's)

    What was really odd was that I could download some RPM's but not others (such as timezone glibc and gnome extras) and this was true across multiple mirrors

    FYI
    System
    OpenSuse 11.4 x64

    My system is nothing special
    Dual core 2.88 MHz intel, Nvidia 8800 GTX 784 MB, 4 GB 800MHz RAM, 2x 500GB WD Serial ATA HD, 3c905x network card. HDMI Audio.

    very odd, I hope I have actually fixed the issue, I'm going to try to manually download one of the troublesome RPM's now that I have all the updates. Oh, I manually added the NVIDIA drivers, but only after I got the updates in.

    Ok, I just DL'ed the timezone RPM with firefox, it went just fine(in normal mode) I was unable to do this before getting the updates in failsafe mode.

    So the solution seems to be to enter failsafe and run Zypper from the console(no X started, I don't know if that's an issue though) then re-boot into failsafe again and I entered yast from a command prompt to finished the update and installed the Nvidia drivers while I was there , I don't know if this had anything to do with it but it DLed 58 updates at this point not including the Nvidia stuff, after that everything seems fine.

    I hope this helps some other people having issues.

    We'll see.
    I don't like things that happen by chance or at random with computers.

    I have been having the same problem. Here's a summary (I have also discussed this in the yast vs system-updater thread; this summarises what I have posted there.):

    Certain packages (timezone, tk) will not download onto the computer at all, although most packages are fine. These packages cannot be downloaded through YaST, zypper, firefox, or wget. I have tried downloading them from a number of mirrors. They can, however, be downloaded from my 11.3 desktop with no problem. Most packages download just fine and it is not a firewall issue because I have tried with the firewall off. I don't have any proxy set up. ipv6 is disabled. The server is on a public address on the University of Cambridge network. I checked the installation media before installing and it was fine.

    Here are some relevant outputs:

    It hangs indefinitely at this point.

    I'm off to try downloading from failsafe mode. Will report back.

    Booting into failsafe fixed it for me: I was able to download tk using zypper (I'd copied timezone across the other day).

    But that is another machine.

    That network could have some filtering or proxy setup.

    Could try that problematic machine running failsafe?
