GNOME missing SuSEfirewall2

SuSEfirewall2

Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/42.2/oss/noarch/SuSEfirewall2-3.6.312-5.3.1.noarch.rpm':

 Error code: Curl error 52

 Error message: Empty reply from server



Posted similar to above message for libgstallocators-1_0-0

Do messages Curl error 52 and Empty reply from server mean package sort not found, a typo error ?

Both appearing a week or longer, when updating some installations failed with message these two missing.

When install item by item ignoring above two missing items, most installations completed OK.

Curious today tried remove older versions, then restarted, to see if able to install ok, appears removed most of GNOME in the process, restart into the IceWM screen.

At least can do essential things using IceWM :slight_smile:

Struggling to figure out how to return to GNOME, were the two removed essentials.

Hi
Probably the mirror your being directed to… add some verbosity to see what it’s doing/going;


zypper -vvv ref
zypper -vvv up

Is the mirror your going too in the following list;


http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/42.2/oss/noarch/SuSEfirewall2-3.6.312-5.3.1.noarch.rpm.mirrorlist

Re-install the gnome pattern…?


zypper in -t pattern gnome gnome_basis

Attempts to install SuSEfirewall2 produced same as earlier failure.

Hi
So if you look at the mirror list for the file (see my link) is there a mirror close to your local, this normally happens when directed at an incomplete mirror, so manually set the mirror rather than use the re-director.

Added the aarnet repos, mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/opensuse/opensuse/distribution/leap/42.2/repo/oss
mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/opensuse/opensuse/distribution/leap/42.2/repo/non-oss

disabled all the other repos,

As not recall how can do with zypper, am u[FONT=comic sans ms]sing YaST for change of repository to [/FONT] mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/opensuse/opensuse/distribution/leap/42.2/repo/oss Downloads OK however paused around 354th package update, opted to continue installation, so far it continues… Wait see how completes, restart then do same for non-oss, assume all completes ok then make operational both packman and libdvdcss .

Downloaded two missing packages, as user NOT as root.

SuSEfirewall2-3.6.312-5.3.1.noarch.rpm 

Used
Install/Remove Softwware” application to install SuSEfirewall2-3.6.312-5.3.1.noarch.rpm

Believe command used :
zypper install /home/paulparker/.cache/zypp/packages/download.opensuse.org-oss_1/x86_64/libgstallocators-1_0-0-1.8.3-5.3.2.x86_64.rpm

**Both installed smoothly **: -) my thanks again to those who design them !

Used zypper to install other updates.

Returned to ACTIVE both libdvdcss and packman
