Any news on Göttingen?

It seems, you are using gwdg.de as URL.

Why not using download.opensuse.org?

I have done my Update without problems.

I only want updates from these repos, not Russia or alike…

Than choose another german mirror. Simple.
https://mirrors.opensuse.org/

Additionally the mirror data you try to download is not present on the mirror. So maybe a wrong refresh setting in your repolist…

These installs were all doing fine for years. Normally I wait one day if I see such errors and update then, but now this is not working for several days with Göttingen…

Not many people will specifically use Göttingen (exception maybe Packman), but the more general URLs which then will choose a mirror. So not many will experience this. But when you think Göttingen is down or broken, just choose another mirror (or the general URLs). And when being curious what is going on in Göttingen, just contact them.

This mirror is out of sync. The last repodata update was on feb 10th. All other actual mirrors had the last update on feb 15th.

As mentioned by Henk, contact the admins of this mirror or choose another mirror…

Actual mirrors:

Outdated gwdg.de:

This can easily be found by just opening the mirror URLs in a browser and looking into the directories…

Hi All
I see a new openSUSE Progress ticket has been created by the GWDG FTP mirror admin team on this issue…

@suse_rasputin why not use mirrorcache or cdn network?

Hi malcolm and thank you for the helpful input! Always a pleasure to read your replies… :slight_smile:

I simply like the control. Have country block in my router and sometimes it results in problems with servers from blocked countries.

Happy weekend everybody!

It is permissible to specify multiple URLs in each .repo file. e.g.:

autorefresh=1
baseurl=http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/tumbleweed/repo/oss
	http://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/opensuse/tumbleweed/repo/oss
	http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/opensuse/tumbleweed/repo/oss
enabled=1

Wow, that’s advanced! Why is this “ftp5” in your gwdg link? I simply have ftp iirc…
