Permission to access denied during update in 11.2


After some update every time I run update from the Yast or zypper I frequently get errors like the following (with zypper):

Permission to access '' denied.

Abort, retry, ignore? [a/r/i/?] (a):

If I type <r> then download continues. Is there any way to fix that or at least make it retry automatically?


Looks like you have a request for a specific rpm rather than a repository name.
Repository name would look like:
Index of /update/11.2/rpm/x86_64

While the access above is asking for

Which should it be?


Could you explain what you mean here?


I assume you are running zypper as a superuser if not you should for updates, refresh, remove, install.

You have a list of repositories for the update, and I’m suggesting that instead of a repository you have the path to an patch or update rpm.

My best quess because you asked a question without much background information.

What did your last zypper update request look like?

Can you post output from

su -c "zypper repos --sort-by-priority --details "
### and
tail  /var/log/zypp/history

please paste output between [foo][/foo] where the word “foo” is replaced by the word “code”
