Online update does not connect to the internet

Hi folks,
I’m in big trouble so I should be obliged if you would help me as soon as possible.
that’s the problem: I cannot use the online update and any other web repository because I got the following error while using the online update:

Errore durante il download di (curl) per 'http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/11.3/repodata/repomd.xml':
Codice dell'errore: Connection failed
Messaggio dell'errore: couldn't connect to host

the translation is:

Error during downloading (curl) from  'http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/11.3/repodata/repomd.xml':
Error code: Connection failed
Error message: couldn't connect to host

I would point out that any other application that needs accessing the internet is working correctly.

Is it just that repo?
Try disabling it and see if the error happens with any others

how many times did you try? i can access the file you mentioned without
problems. perhaps the server had problems, or your internet connection was
acting up. what happens if you try to open

http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/11.3/repodata/repomd.xml 

from a browser?


phani.

Thanks for fast reply.

how many times did you try?

many, many times.

what happens if you try to open

http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/11.3/repodata/repomd.xml

from a browser?

From firefox i can surf the repo correctly.

Is it just that repo?

excuse me if the translation is not perfect.

Are you connecting via a ‘Normal’ home router situation?

Yes I am.

Thanks a lot for your assistance!

So you were able to add the repositories. Did they work OK at one point ?

I have seen this before, but my brain is fuzzy on the solution right now. I’ll keep thinking on it.

I have an idea
Are you in Italy?

Please try removing all repos and try these main repos

OSS
Index of /mirrors/ftp.opensuse.org/distribution/11.3/repo/oss

NON-OSS
Index of /mirrors/ftp.opensuse.org/distribution/11.3/repo/non-oss

UPDATE
Index of /mirrors/ftp.opensuse.org/update/11.3

See if you can get those working
Then we’ll look at the others

I cannot get those working.
This is the error message:

Impossibile accedere al supporto di installazione 
http://ftp.belnet.be/mirrors/ftp.opensuse.org/distribution/11.3/repo/non-oss/
 (Supporto 1).
Verificare che il server sia accessibile

Transaltion:

Impossible to access to the support of installation
http://ftp.belnet.be/mirrors/ftp.opensuse.org/distribution/11.3/repo/non-oss/
 (Support 1).
Verfy  that the server is accessible

Are you in Italy?

Yes I am.

Did they work OK at one point ?

Yes they did

Try these
GARR Network’s MIRROR FTP-archive

GARR Network’s MIRROR FTP-archive

GARR Network’s MIRROR FTP-archive

I got the same error:

Impossibile accedere al supporto di installazione 
http://opensuse.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/opensuse/distribution/11.3/repo/non-oss/
 (Supporto 1).
Verificare che il server sia accessibile.

So have you been able to add them or can’t you even do that now?

I have not been able to add the repo, the error message comes after I put the URL and press enter

Have a look at the logs. If you are using zypper they are in /var/log/zypp,
yast in /var/log/YaST2/. Locate the logs with recent changes. There should
be calls to aria2c. Perhaps post it to a pastebin so we can have a look.

Remember to do the calls preceded with "LANG=en_US.UTF-8 " so messages are
in English.

Use:

LANG=en_US.UTF-8 whatevercommand and parameters.

The output will be in English.

Hi robin, I am a newbie and I don’t know well how to do what you say:

yast in /var/log/YaST2/. Locate the logs with recent changes. There should

can you explain the procedure step by step?

Thanks a lot
