Recently I’ve had trouble running online update. I’ve found various posts about this by others, so it seems like a somewhat recurring theme. Anyway, as of now, I rebooted, logged in a root, went to Yast2 -> Online Update, and I get a dialog box saying
No active update repo. available
Exit online update now?
I say yes, goto yast -> Online Update Configuration.
Current Update Repository:
The Set Default button is greyed out.
Beforehand, I went to software repos and disabled everything except
linux-4ks5:/usr/share/man # zypper lu

No updates found.
I was able to delete all my repos. I added just the update repo, clicked OK. It downloaded a few files. Then it got thru ‘refresh metdata’, but died in ‘rebuild cache’. It gave me the following dialog box:
Well, I took a screenshot but can’t figure out how to attach it…
Might it be that there’s an error in the files on the repo?
Forget Online Update Config.
I don’t use the updater applet in the sys tray either - I just use Software Management - Filter by Repo and select the channels I want to update.
Or if you like the updater applet, fine - or just use Online Update, no need to use the config.
