online updates

recently i installed openopensuse11. When I tried to configure online updates it shows an error "Execute curl command failed with ‘28’:
curl: (28) connect() timed out!
any solutions
thanks in advance

Not sure why this has happened. Some users report strange problems with the updater. Open a console and become root with ‘su’ command. Enter root password when prompted. Then try

zypper refresh
zypper up

See how that goes…

It said “connect() timed out”… I’d just click on ‘Retry’.

Gee, no answer, try again?

Thanks, but zypper up shows “Reading installed packages…
Nothing to do”. what does that mean

t said “connect() timed out”… I’d just click on ‘Retry’.

Oops, <excuses> I must have been reading between the lines :slight_smile: Must have been blinded by the “Execute curl command failed with ‘28’:
curl: (28) connect() timed out!” message.

Yes, as Loni suggested, try the updater again, or via YaST > Software > Online Update.

K.I.S.S.

{Smile} I had to say this… but…

It means that there’s nothing to do. All the updates have been installed.
It’s all done. Taa Daa!

Now see, I might have made you feel bad… and I didn’t want that… {Grin}
Don’t feel bad about asking that… that’s an order!! I’d hate to have to
send ol’ Deano to “take care of you”…

“Deano”… that’s Italian, right? {Grin}… wait… you’re in NZ, drat!
Guess that’s down the gurgler! {Sigh} I was SO close to having an Italian
Enforcer. Darn.

Yes, I’m a Kiwi. My Dad is responsible (=to blame) for name ‘Dean Martin’. What was he thinking!? ‘ferrari’ was a nickname given by work colleagues in my younger days - so obvious choice for nick here…<pretending to sing>
