Problem with multimedia repo

I have the following repo http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/repositories/multimedia:/libs/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/
and while refreshing I get this error/warning:

An error occurred during repository initialization. [opensuse-multimedia-libs|http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/repositories/multimedia:/libs/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/] Valid metadata not found at specified URL History: - SKIP request: User-requested skipping of a file - Can’t provide ./repodata/5aee12dace96682feff9bbd0a06f30a516bacad7df890ed58b9f345fa7d77adf-primary.xml.gz

So YaST cannot access it but at the same time I can access it in the browser.

What’s wrong?

What is “it”. The directory or the file /repodata/5aee12dace96682feff9bbd0a06f30a516bacad7df890ed58b9f345fa7d77adf-primary.xml.gz ?

Maybe temporary due to an update of the mirror you use. Either wait a bit or use another mirror.

Please show output of


zypper lr -d

between CODE tags, the # in the editor layout ribbon

To start with you could invoke


sudo zypper clean
sudo zypper ref

If that produces the same error, further investigation is needed.

Here is the output from console:

If I access this repo from a browser, I cannot see there this particular file 5aee12dace96682feff9bbd0a06f

I can see 3 other, but not this one.

I’d like to add that few weeks ago I had the same problem and wanted it post it on the forum.

Just in case you may need it:

zypper lr -d

Multimedia:libs and Packman at same time will give Problems, maybe earlier or later.

So I would not enabled multimedia:libs.

Also why do you have this one?
