repository update coudn't perform

hello guys,

i am getting enjoyed openSUSE 11.3 but i got some problem on installing some applications like nano, pico and i couldn’t update the system in CLI and/or GUI ()YaSt software update), i am feeling all the problems are related with the repository, and i have tried to refresh, add and edit repositories still i can perform such actions, i am the supper user (root), any helps are very welcome.

one more thing on the forum, how can i see my own posts just like other forums do?

are you saying that you are logging into KDE or Gnome (from the green
log in page) as root/superuser? please answer this question!

the inability to fetch data from the repos can be influenced by which
repo you are contacting…

you are currently getting an error from the update repo which was
automatically picked by “MirrorBrain” (the generic address
download.opensuse.org is just a traffic director, not an actual repo),
perhaps the problem with that particular mirror will be resolved and
all will be ok in a few hours…OR you may manually pick a mirror
near you and try it–pick one (with a 11.3 update repo) from here from
the list at: http://mirrors.opensuse.org/

you can read more about how the system automatically shuttles your
request from the generic download.opensuse.org or
software.opensuse.org via MirrorBrain at
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Mirrors

yes i can and see index and here sample url i get Index of /factory/repo , i was going to home for launch

As I see the problem is in update repo. Maybe in URL of repo.
Make a

su
# zypper refresh

Send the output here.

My repositories’ url is that

| Updates for openSUSE 11.3 11.3-1.82     | Updates for openSUSE 11.3 11.3-1.82     | Yes     | Yes     |   99     | rpm-md | http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.3/ 

Try with my url.

URL is fine.

i am using gnome desktop, in some time intervals i see some popup baloon near the time which says that the software download server is not connecting and here is the details of that error

ownload (curl) error for ‘http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.3/repodata/repomd.xml’:
Error code: Connection failed
Error message: couldn’t connect to host

and abot the first question i also login from CLI by opening the page with Ctrl + Alt + F2 the same problem is their too.

For Stamos,
