    If you look at the "zypper lr" output the @OP posted, you will see he actually has the text string FOOBAR in his repository paths.
    No, he hasn't. Ask him to post (or check on an openSUSE system you have access to, no need to be root):
    Code:
    grep baseurl /etc/zypp/repos.d/*.repo
    to see what is really there.
    The zypper lr list does NOT show what is in those files, it shows what is in those files after replacement of the $releaver with either the default version (which is the current installed version), or by the string defined in the global zypper option --releasever.

    In my post responding to him,
    I included the snippet of his posting and highlighted his FOOBAR values in his repo URI in bold red.

    I know that he has FOOBAR in several of the lines of his zypper lr -d, and I also know why. Because I asked him to do so. It is me that introduced the word FOOBAR in this thread by asking him to do
    Code:
    zypper --releasever FOOBAR lr -d
    I know you highlighted this as FOOBAR in your snippet, but you still fail to see why it is there in the first place.

    There is no FOOBAR in /etc/zypp/repos.d/*.repo. And I asked you to look in your own system, but you are too stubborn to do so. You can do the
    Code:
    zypper --releasever lr -d
    on your own system, but you are too lazy to do so.

    I stop this discussion. There is no use to repeat saying "yes" and "no" to each other where I every time show things from the zypper man page and from my system and ask you to do the same, but you refuse to gather evidence of your statements. In short: useless discussion on deaf ears.

    As a last try:
    Code:
    boven:~ # zypper --releasever STUPID lr -d |grep main
     6 | main                 | Main (OSS)             | Yes     | (r ) Yes  | Yes     |   99     | rpm-md | http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/STUPID/repo/oss/            | 
     7 | main-non-oss         | Main (Non-OSS)         | Yes     | (r ) Yes  | Yes     |   99     | rpm-md | http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/STUPID/repo/non-oss/        | 
    boven:~ # zypper --releasever STUBBORN lr -d |grep main
     6 | main                 | Main (OSS)             | Yes     | (r ) Yes  | Yes     |   99     | rpm-md | http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/STUBBORN/repo/oss/            | 
     7 | main-non-oss         | Main (Non-OSS)         | Yes     | (r ) Yes  | Yes     |   99     | rpm-md | http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/STUBBORN/repo/non-oss/        |
