Thread: Repo refresh error "cannot access installation media"

    Default Repo refresh error "cannot access installation media"

    https://1drv.ms/i/s!AggwsX8Lu36rg0ygcuiOZd38Uimz

    I just did a fresh install of Leap 42.1 on my EliteBook 8570w, choosing the KDE desktop. While refreshing the repo's I was greeted by the error message above. I noticed that one of the repo's address pointed to the flash drive that I used to boot the iso from. As can be seen here:

    https://1drv.ms/i/s!AggwsX8Lu36rg038e5jzhsq-SrAS

    I can correct the error message by either putting the flash drive back in and clicking "retry", or obviously by disabling that one repo. Its not clear to me the correct way to fully solve this problem. My first thought was to find the correct URL address, but after searching the package repo's online I cannot find one that fits that repo.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi
    Disable is the normal thing, if you don't want to use the online oss repo for the main packages, then can always use the dvd iso image as a local repo.

    Ok. Disabled it is.

    I didn't know the purpose of that repo, so I was hesitant to disable it without some feedback.

    Thanks

    There was an additional error I received when attempting to do the software update. I cannot reproduce that to get the exact wording, but it was something like:

    "there is a possible temporary error finding the software source origin". I plugged the flash drive in, hit retry and it bypassed the error and apparently successfully updated.

    I mention this because I removed the flash and shortly after the KDE desktop partially froze. I could not open dolphin and some other applications. I decided to restart and then the desktop crashed. Using the advanced boot settings I was able to restore a previous session (linux 4.1.12-1 works, but linux 4.1.27-27 won't).

    Do you think that error and the desktop crash are related? If so, how to fix so I can restore the most updated version? If its unrelated, I'll start a new thread.

    Hi
    Try cleaning up the cache and force a refresh (could be some stale
    info);

    Code:
    zypper clean -a
    zypper ref -f
    zypper lu
    zypper up

    I did this procedure from the restored desktop (linux 4.1.12-1) and then rebooted the machine. No success attempting to boot the linux 4.1.27-27 version. Unless you have other ideas related to this repo problem, I will start a clean thread for this problem.

    In the new thread could you please tell us whereabouts in the world you are located and what repositories you have enabled?
    Code:
    > zypper -d -E
    Sometimes the computer tries to use a mirror that is not working properly, or has a difficult route. I have one off the beaten track machine that I do a few runs of "zypper patch ---download-only" before attempting the update.
    ~Thank you for sharing an interesting problem.

    Ran zypper -d -E and received an error message.

    If you want to see the repo's that are enabled, go to my first post on this thread and click on the second link. I took a screen shot of Yast with all the repo's visible.

    Will open a new thread for the desktop crash. Thanks.
