Thread: packman repository not working?

  1. #1

    Default packman repository not working?

    Packman appeared to be unreachable, so I removed it and attempted to add it back, thinking maybe the address had changed, and now I'm receiving the following error:

    Code:
    Adding repository Packman Repository failed.
    
    Unknown error reading from 'http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/packman/suse/openSUSE_13.1//'
    History:
       -ABORT request: Aborting requested by user
       -Timeout exceeded when accessing 'http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/packman/suse/openSUSE_13.1//repodata/repomd.xml'
    Is the packman repository down or has it been moved? Thanks.

    Hi
    Try a different mirror.

    The packman repository is not working from my location, either, has not been for at least a day, maybe longer.

    It's not a problem with Packman, it is a problem with gwdg.de.

    packman.inode.at has worked fine for me all the time and still does.

    same here, yesterday I've replaced it

    http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_13.1/

    the gwdg.de is used when you do the one click install of kde codecs
