Thread: Packman repository permission denied

  1. #1

    Default Packman repository permission denied

    Hi,

    I've been having this issue since this morning when trying to zypper dup (and Permission to access 'http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/repodata/repomd.xml' denied when trying refresh) and don't see it mentioned elsewhere...

    Problem retrieving files from 'packman'.
    Permission to access 'http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/repodata/repomd.xml' denied.

    Is this an issue with me or them? Is that the right address? Putting it in a browser directly gets 403 Forbidden

    Thanks
    MorayJ

    There are several recent threads on this.

    Short term answer -- wait a few days and see if it corrects.

    Long term answer -- try using a different packman mirror.

    How do I use a different packman mirror? And unlike the OP, I'm using Leap 15.2

    You can use Yast Software Repositories, and just edit the url.

    Do as nrickert stated, or if you want to you can remove the existing repo with 'zypper rr <alias_or_repo_number>' and then add the new repo with
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/openSUSE_Leap_15.2/ packman
    openSUSE Leap 15.3; KDE Plasma 5

    Thanks. But how do I know that I set up Packman correctly? It there some test I can use, perhaps a program that will fail unless Packman's working properly? Mind you, I'm new to Linux.

    You could do
    Code:
    zypper ref -r packman
    Adjust to suit the name you used for the repo.
