Thread: Error accessing repository

    Question Error accessing repository

    I have a new installation for OpenSuse 13.2. Try to use YaST2 to install packages, I got the following error:

    Cannot access installation media
    Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.2/repo/oss/repodata/repomd.xml
    Error code: Unrecognized error
    Error message: Empty reply from server

    I tried to replace download.opensuse.org by a different mirror but got the same error.
    Navigating to the mirror using the browser, I could not see a file named 'repodata/repomd.xml' under .../oss/

    What did I do wrong? Any suggestions?

    Try a different mirror sometime one is down or getting maintenance.

    that is the install dvd

    it should not even be in the "/etc/zypp/repos.d/" folder
    nor should it be turned on if it is
    "enabled=0" is the OFF setting

    the second error looks to be created by the manual editing you did
    Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.2/repo/oss/repodata/repomd.xml
    Error code: Unrecognized error
    -----------

    the BASE url for the suse13 would be

    "repo-update.repo"
    --
    baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/update/13.2/
    --

    "openSUSE-13.2-Non-Oss"
    --
    baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.2/repo/non-oss/
    --


    so for the OSS it would be
    http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.2/repo/oss
