Repository issue in 11.1

Hi guys I upgraded from openSuse 11.0 to .1 though with many tweaks, when I try to install any software from online repository I get a connection error as below, this is despite the fact I got a perfect Internet connection, can ping the URL and have even tried to include it in hosts file. The problem also occurs when I try adding a new repository

Download (curl) error for ‘’:
Error code:
Error message: couldn’t connect to host

There was an error in the repository initialization.
‘repo-update’: |] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)

What could be wrong here, Is my machine lackin a form of authentication, did the upgrade cause this or what?


Sounds more like the mirror you’re being redirected is broken.

Add one manually, you can find a list here; Mirror - openSUSE
