openSUSE 11.2 Updates fail (repo-not-available)

The repository is not currently (or no longer) valid. The path still exists up to the “Contrib” level, however, there are no files or subdirectories under it. There are also two siblings at the “Contrib” directory level (“Live” and “Update:”) and there are no files under them either other than a single subdirectory called “Test” under “Update:”.

Does anyone know if the updates that used to be available in this repository have moved and, if so, where to? If the repository is no longer required and there is no replacement, I’ll simply remove it.

I have also noticed issues for several months where the updater applet will go into an “updating” state and never return from it. Has anyone else experienced this behavior and have any thoughts on what the issue might be?

Best Regards,


I think I’m having the same problem.
I’m getting this error message:
PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File ‘/repodata/repomd.xml’ not found on medium ‘

You cn no longer update since 11.2 is end of live. Most repositories are removed,
you should consider to update to a supported version or look at evergreen if you
need to run 11.2 longer.
