UPDATE ERROR - what does this mean?

Download (curl) error for ‘https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/system:/snappy/openSUSE_Leap_15.1/repodata/repomd.xml’:
Error code: Curl error 51
Error message: SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name ‘download.opensuse.org

And is there a fix for it?

See https://status.opensuse.org/

As a workaround, the DNS was changed, but I guess only http will work (you’re using repositories over https)

Thanks that helped, I had to disable it for updates to be recognized.

One would think that if a repo address is ‘bad’, the update system would skip it and go on with the repo’s that are not ‘bad’. Instead of stopping everything.

Software Management is giving the same curl related error message BILL_L described for every repo in my configuration. I can click to skip checking on each repo and after the list has been gone through, Software Manager proceeds in a normal fashion regarding downloads and installs.

I checked the last set of updates (approximately 20 I picked up earlier today) and there was no curl update.

Something has broken curl’s involvement in acquiring updates from the repos.I have no knowledge of these processes.

I think there is a data server problem somewhere.

Looks to me I am having the same issue on Tumbleweed. :slight_smile:

Gonna try the command-line.

Same error, just gonna wait for now.

The openSUSE download server is currently not fully functional: <https://status.opensuse.org/incidents/230&gt;.

Our mirror server in Provo is now a complete replacement for download.opensuse.org (including database and redirector). Sadly some files are not up-to date on the machine, so you might not get the latest files that are built in our openSUSE build service for some time.

Meanwhile, we are working on the original download server to get it back as soon as possible.

It looks as if everything is now back to normal. An ip lookup now returns the European address instead of the temporary USA address.

Yes, according to the News feed – posted 3 hours ago: <https://status.opensuse.org/incidents/230&gt;

https://download.opensuse.org/ is back to normal. Thanks to everyone involved in analyzing and fixing the root cause!

Your’s are maximum values, not typical ones. Mine are nominal values. M-net guarantees 90% of nominal. Actual ones are 27,5 Mbit/s and 5,5 Mbit/s. Connection is up since 24. March 2020:

Broadband measurement via the German Federal Network Agency reveals that, my Downlink is running at 94,1 % of the maximum possible rate and, the Uplink is running at 92,5 % of the maximum possible rate – both of which are bit-rates more than the Agency’s nominal target bit-rate – my ISP won’t receive a visit by the Agency’s staff triggered by unacceptable throughput figures … :wink:

I got 101.5%, 101%, 18ms (Frankfurt). Zypper dup gets 109% which is what the Fritz!Box displays.

Yes, your mileage may vary – depending on the time of day – which is why the Federal Agency recommends testing on two separate days with 10 measurements per day.

  • If I can find a CLI connection to their test, I’ll write either a user cron job or a systemd user unit to see how everything pans out at hourly intervals over 2 days … >:)
