Leap 15.5 beta Network Image points to 15.4 repos

Downloaded the beta netinst ISO image from http://get.opensuse.org/leap/15.5/:

The installer tries to download the repo data and then warns “To use the selected repository a matching boot image is needed. Download it now and restart?”
If I click on Yes, it looks like I get a Leap 15.4 boot image.

When looking into installer details (Expert → Show Config), I see that default repo locations is set to http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.4/repo/oss.

On tty3 (C-M-F3) I also see only /leap/15.4/ paths.

Was I too fast to download 15.5 beta or is the Network Image not supported, yet?

15.5 is under development, the most current version is from two days ago (build 408.2).
The repositories of that version have to be from 15.5, the tests are useless if you break the dependencies, I also think that the ideal thing, since only 15.5 is tested with its own repos, is to do it like TW, that is, a zypper dup .

That is from : http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.5/repo/

Hm. This is strange.

Today’s news says that there is Leap 15.5 beta (Leap 15.5 Reaches Beta Phase - openSUSE News) and asks me to download and test things:

Download the Beta…

The Leap 15.5 Beta is available on get.opensuse.org. Pick an image fitting your purposes. Install it on a VM like virtualbox, GNOME Boxes or install it on your own hardware.

But following above link leads me to download the 408.2 version.
So either the news is not correct or the download does not provide the latest version.
Maybe I am too impatient and things are in sync tomorrow?


The one that is currently being tested does not have to be the download one, the 408.2 is the one that has been in OpenQA (for two days), that does not imply that it is the one that is being tested.

In my case, I’ve had it installed for months, which, for me, is an update.
The usual thing is to pass the openQA iso to distribution, that’s more or less what I’ve observed, but in this case they haven’t done it, I don’t know why (I looked at it a few hours ago and it wasn’t there), maybe they passed it to another site, so they can try it.

The one I have is this and it is updated today with more than 180-odd packages.

This looks like a buggy build of the NET image. I suggest you report this as a bug.

I’ll note that I downloaded the NET image and tested in a VM, with similar results.

I have already installed using the DVD iso, and that one is fine.

Thank you .
I’ll download an iso and check on another computer.
A few hours ago, I looked in the distribution and the 64 iso was not there, I suppose it is downloading from the download page.
Greetings .

I get the same build as the OpenQA build
It is here: file:///home/frank/Downloads/openSUSE-Leap-15.5-DVD-x86_64-Build408.2-Media.iso .
I don’t know if it’s the same one?

Done: Bug 1208543 – Leap 15.5 beta Network Image points to 15.4 repos


Yes, you’re too fast – please read the Beta Leap 15.5 announcement correctly:

The release manager for openSUSE Leap Luboš Kocman is expected to announce the Beta release phase of Leap 15.5 soon.

I haven’t seen the release announcement for the Leap 15.5 Beta yet but, it’s coming soon:sunglasses:

No, that was not the problem. He did download Build408.2, which is supposed to be the Beta version. And the DVD image for Build408.2 did give me the Beta release.

Same here, but I checked just before writing this and a new NET install image is now available without the 408.2 suffix.
I didn’t check if it works differently though.

The download link seems to be a general one:

Confirming, I double-checked on the local mirror (http://opensuse.mirror.garr.it/) and both point to the same image published on Feb. 18. So let’s wait and see if anybody replies to the bug report.
By the way, I was able to make an install after manual adjustment of the repo links, but I ended up downloading much more than the 4 GB of the DVD image, possibly because the 15.4 content had been downloaded as well before I was able to correct the faulty links…
