It was clear to me that you’re not trying to deinstall. I just suggested to isolate the problem by refreshig the repos one by one rather than deinstalling them. Btw you could also disable/reenable (zypper mr -d/zypper mr -e) repos.
The issue you describe looks like a network problem at one of both ends. Also check if the partition where you have /var/cache/zypp/packages is not getting full (in case you’re using a separate /var partition maybe). You might find some infos in /var/cache/zypp/aria2.stats
I’ve gone down to only 2 repos: Main-OSS, and Update. Main is fine, Update has the download problem.
/var is on my root part. and ~2G free, but that’s a good thought.
Lots of failure messages in the aria2.stats log. Looks like it’s trying all the mirrors, including the one mentioned by caf4926, but with no luck.
Interestingly enough, out of the 3 11.3 machines I have at home, 2 are having this problem. The third one reads repos and updates like charm, just as they were all doing last week.
I’d wondered if maybe there was something mucked up in the repo data, but since one of my machines is working, that’s not it. AND, since one of my machines is working (consistently), it’s not as likely to be my home net or ISP. Something’s got to be mucked up on these two machines . . .
Are there any other zypper or aria2c configs/caches/etc that can be cleared out, set to default, ???
