OpenSUSE 13.2 https proxy configuration with YAST

I am trying to use a proxy with an openSUSE VM. Specifically, I want to use Zypper to get some packages. My proxy is something like
I was able to get the proxy working systemwide (I am able to curl a website) but I was unable to get it working for YAST. When I changed the YAST proxy settings so instead of using https (, the proxy used http (, everything worked fine. I was able to fix the problem, but I don’t understand why changing https to http in the proxy address made it work. Is there a specific characteristic of openSUSE 13.2 or YAST/zypper that makes it so https proxies don’t work? Or is this problem specific to my proxy? Thanks in advance!

I haven’t used the YAST proxy in quite awhile, but AFAIK there should not be any problem using https as long as you have your openssl libraries installed.

It’s a catch-22,
But once you have a working connection, try updating your system manually

zypper up

try using https in your connection strings again.
(eg run “zypper up” again can be a test)
