I get a prompt almost daily that updates are available and when I have time I open a terminal and run sudo zypper dup.
This error came as a surprise. In many thousand updates over the years since I went to TW I have never seen this error before.
Here is my repo list:-
alastair@ibmserv2:~> zypper lr

I am running sudo zypper dup again today but there are 333 updates and 4 changes from packman to opensuse required. Will let you know when this has run and if the error reappears. The obvious question for myself is should there be a repo for the snappy site and others have pointed to this as a possible omission. Could it be I have installed snappy at some time without adding the repo? I have no recollection of installing snappy and do not think I need it! I wonder if I was trying to install a snap package and snappy was installed in error on a bad day!
Thanks for the explanation that you indeed use zypper dup (and only zypper dup).
But you have missed that for a repo list we alwyas ask for
zypper lr -d
As your list is now it does not provide much information. There are only names and aliases that are local to your system (and yes, they hint to what they probably are), but there is no URI at all. Thus nobody can check if you have the correct repos behind those banes and aliases.
Using “http” should be fine. Your updates are protected by “gpg” signatures, so “https” is not necessary.
When I look at your list of repos, I do not see the one that was generating the error message in your OP. So perhaps you were originally doing something other than “zypper dup” to cause that error message to show up.
We are back to not knowing what you actually did, which makes it hard to understand the problem.
Hi and thanks,
Since Henk instructed me I have only ever used zypper dup. Why would I dare use anything else after such a clear direction from Henk?
No idea where snappy came from but the update error has not appeared on my update today so am not going to pursue further.
Sorry to have wasted everybody’s time.
