repos problem

Every time I try to update the system I get this message:

 $ sudo zypper update
No se encuentra el archivo /repodata/repomd.xml en el medio
¿Cancelar, reintentar o ignorar? [a/r/i/...? mostrar todas las opciones] (a): 

And in Yast I have:

Can you help me fix this?


I’m getting a 404 on your link. And I don’t speak the language of your error message.

However: I occasionally run into what is probably the same problem. The repo was probably being updated at around the time you were trying to use it. I suggest you wait a few hours, and then try again.

And when you do this (as root) of course):

LANG=C zypper up

most of us will understand better. :wink:

A thing you can do:

sudo zypper clean
sudo zypper ref
sudo zypper up

That would clean out cached data, get the content of the repos, then try to perform the update.

A thing to consider would be to find a mirror close to where you live

most definitely a mirror issue if the issue persists you should pick a different mirror preferably one in your isp’s network or country
you need to link to a file to get a mirror list you can’t do it with a directory so I picked the README file
if there’s no mirror in your country pick one of the German mirrors as they’re up most of the time they’re fast and reliable like
you can edit a repo’s url in yast or with zypper

Thank you for all of your replies.
The mesage I obtain is this:

File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium ''
Abort, retry, ignore? [a/r/i/...? shows all options] (a):

This my YaST repositories:

What is in order to do? Thanks](

You can at least remove one of the Packman repos. Check for other duplicates too. But the list itself shouldn’t be the problem. Did you try the suggestion I gave you?

Thanks, I removed one of packman’s. I had tried what you suggested, and repeated it, but still have the same message:

# zypper ref

What can I try?

When you look with your browser to that URL you will see thatthere is indeed bo /repodata there. When you compare with the repos of non-OSS in your repo list, you will see that there there is /suse at the end. And when you look into you will see that there is a /repodata there.

So better change you OSS repo by adding /suse and try again. is a redirector, which redirects to a mirror near by you.
Maybe this mirror has problems.

Use another:

This fixed the issue.
Thank you so very much!:slight_smile:
