    Next

    and received the error popup

    I made it into habit opening the repo in a browser:

    http://ftp.fau.de/packman/suse/openS...ssentials.repo

    To add the repo open a root shell and copy and paste the URL into the following command:

    Code:
    erlangen:~ # zypper addrepo --refresh http://ftp.fau.de/packman/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/Essentials/packman-essentials.repo
    Adding repository 'Packman Essentials repository (openSUSE_Tumbleweed)' ...............................................................................................................................................................[done]

    GPG Check   : Yes                                                        
    Autorefresh : Yes

    The advantage of selecting from Community Repositories is that I don't have to worry about the URL being different from the last time through.

    BTW, I submitted a bug report and the problem has been resolved, at least as it affects me.
