Thread: Can't find update repositories

    Default Can't find update repositories

    Hi,

    I'm still running OpenSUSE 13.2 and some update repositories are no longer available (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit.../openSUSE_13.2 for example). Is there any way to receive updates from this repositories with this version?

    Thanks

    13.2 is out of support since over a month...

    No. Other than ask the person that provides that repo to still build packages for 13.2.
    (Or build them yourself)

    Oh.. So what is the version I should upgrade to? As you can see I'm not huge fan of system upgrades so which version is "LTS"/"Evergreen"?

    There is none.
    Although Leap 42 as a whole is considered as something like an LTS...

    And I would suggest to upgrade to the latest version, 42.2.
    42.1 is going out of support soon too (in May)...

    Thanks. Is it safe to go from 13.2 to 42.2?

    Depending on your system there may be issues, IMO, best to do a clean install. Depends on how comfortable you are in trouble shooting. If you want to test before installing try GeckoLinux which is a live version of 42.2

    https://geckolinux.github.io/

    Note Gecko includes some proprietary drivers that openSUSE does not include by default and thus it is more likely to work out of the box

    I had absolutely no problems doing that on several systems.
    And upgrading 13.2 to 42.2 is even officially tested (only a standard installation though).

    If you use btrfs, you should even be able to boot (and revert to) a snapshot of your 13.2 system in case of problems.
