Thread: Problem connecting to a software origin

    Default Problem connecting to a software origin

    Hope I've placed this in the right forum, but I don't really know where the problem lies.

    For the first time, using 12.3, when I tried to update today using either Yast 2 or zypper I get this message for each repository:

    Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/LibreOffice:/Stable/openSUSE_12.3/repodata/repomd.xml': Error code: Connection failed Error message: Failed to connect to 2001:67c:2178:8::13: Network is unreachable

    Other programs using the internet are connecting with no problems.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    A little clarification: by "for the first time today" I mean this hasn't happened before.

    close YaST
    open terminal / konsole and run the commands

    Code:
    sudo zypper clean
    sudo zypper clean --all
    sudo zypper ref -f
    re-open YaST and check whether it works now

    Maybe there is a problem with the mirror you get redirected to (or somewhere along the route)?

    Just try again later. Maybe it works then again.

    that is an IPv6 address--is your networking system and ISP capable of
    using IPv6 addresses?

    That doesn't matter.
    It's just that the server has IPv4 AND IPv6 addresses which zypper all tries, but it only prints the error message for the LAST address it tried (this is a limitation of curl IIANM).
    So it did try the IPv4 address first and that also failed.

    Possibly, but that means that the real error is hidden.

    I would try manually the same download with curl to find out the
    previous errors. Or, read the log.


    But guessing that the OP is somewhere in China, I thought they used IPv6
    there, as IPv4 addresses are scarce for them.
