    Default No Active Update Repository Available


    Hi there --

    I just completed updating 10.2 to 11.1, and I am going through the
    motions of running an on-line update for the operating system. I started
    yast2, and I clicked on Online Update. The error message that I am
    seeing is the following:

    No active update repository available. Exit online update?

    I checked the configured software repositories for the system, and here
    is what is listed:

    'Index of /debug/distribution/11.1/repo/oss'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/debug/d...11.1/repo/oss/)
    http://download.opensuse.org/11.1/repo/non-oss/
    http://download.opensuse.org/11.1/repo/oss/
    'Index of /source/distribution/11.1/repo/oss'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/source/.../11.1/repo/oss)

    The above sites are all set to a priority of 99 (default), and all have
    enabled and autorefresh configured for them.

    Is there anything else that should be configured, or are all packages
    and their affiliated files truly up-to-date?

    Thanks.

    Well You need an update repo which is 'Index of /update/11.1'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.1/)

    I'm not sure if it works like that but when upgradng You get updated
    packages from DVD right? Updates are taken from separate repo, if anyone
    could correct me but OSS doesn't get any updates at all, and aren't all
    OSS packages basically the same as in the DVD?

    Just suggesting one possibility, verify you have an active and healthy
    network connection.

    Eg. If you have one network interface but Yast is reporting 2
    (typically, one configured for DHCP and another unconfigured), you need
    to delete the DHCP configuration (because it has become unbound) and
    configure the unconfigured for DHCP (because that is now bound to the
    physical interface).

    HTH...

    Hi there --

    Thanks for your reply. I went through the motions of adding the update
    repository to the list, and removed the four existing ones so currently
    the only thing in the list is the update repository.

    Besides the update URL, are there any other sitesthat should be on the
    list? Thanks.

    I would definitely keep OSS and non-OSS (say you remove something and
    want it back later?), add Packman, add Nvidia, add Videolan
    (temporarily, just to install libdvdcss and then immediately remove that
    repo) . That is all in my case.

    Later if You want a package that is not in those repos search for it on
    " 'Software.openSUSE.org' (http://software.opensuse.org/search) " . And
    add accordingly.
