    I'm going to guess your original installation media is described by the path in your error and this original install source has been removed.

    Disable this installation source in YAST > Software Repositories

    You should then be able to install without being bothered by an install source that no longer exists.

    I agree with tsu2.

    I've seen similar messages. I use a SanDisk Cruzer USB for my installs.

    If I plug in the install USB then hit "retry", it works. However, I usually just go into
    Yast --> Software Repositories
    and mark that repo as disabled. And then I never see the problem again.
