What happened to the 13.2 repos

My zypper says that the update repos are missing e.g.

Have they been moved somewhere?

openSUSE 13.2 reached end of life on January 17th 2017. It is discontinued, which is why you can’t find updates for it anymore.
Currently supported are Leap 42.2, Leap 42.3 and Tumbleweed.
You can find more detailed information here: https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime

I don’t understand why that means that updates must be withdrawn.
Is there a shortage of disk space?

You need to contact the discontinued mirror owner and ask them to restore the 13.2 repo…

See this usenet post I replied to about 12.3…

It’s not a mirror. It’s opensuse.org

As pointed out in the link to Lifetimes, is discontinued, therefore only resides on a mirror. The infrastructure uses ‘mirrorbrain’ to direct you from the download.opensuse.org link to a mirror in your locale, in this case only one existed which is normally the gwdg one. They have probably been deleted to make space for Leap 42.3.

Hello, i am currently on Leap 42.1. I wanted to upgrade to Leap 42.2, so I started removing the irrelevant repos, aiming only to keep Leap 42.1 Update and OSS. Accidentally, I removed those too! Now I have the following and the question is what should i do in order to upgrade to Leap42.1. Apparently, the kernel is still on Leap 42.1 (that is what is written when booting), but I have no repos from this version. Should I download first Leap 42.1 repos and from where or should I go directly to Leap 42.2??

The following is a link to a mirror of the last published 13.2 update.
Update, then upgrade to 42.2 or 42.3 (I advise the latter).

The following is the SDB:System Upgrade which should be your guide to upgrading, read the sections relating to 13.2…


Hi, I am running openSUSE 13.2 and having the same issue with dead link to “http://download.opensuse.org/update/13.2/”. I dont see the mirror link you posted above, please post it again. The only link I see is the one for the system upgrade guide.

I understand that repositories are not longer maintained at the end of a version’s lifecycle, however, OpenSuse 13.2. was and still is, in my opinion, the newest most stable OpenSuse available. I personally still run it on two mission-critical compute machines, in particular, because I am truly disappointed by the constant kernel issues that make Tumbleweed, Leap 42.x (I used them all) not suited for 24/7 usage. None of my 13.2 machines crashed a single time over the last 2 years while the other machines average around once-a-day (main Leap 42.3 system about 10-15 times a day). Indeed, I am writing this post on my oldest machine (buillt in 2003) on 13.2 while restarting my modern compute system for the 4th time this morning (within 3h of runtime) after a Leap 42.3 kernel-panic that is persistent for months of constant kernel 4.4.xx updates without any signs of hardware failures.

Hence, given the low costs of HDD space, it should be discussed if (passive) repositories could not stay available indefinitely. Sure, packages will not be updated within an expired stream, but it would allow users with awesomely-running rock-solid and stable OpenSuse derivates to keep using what simply works. Ten years ago, I would take every single update available and spend sometimes weeks debugging kernel issues etc., but I simply don’t have the time anymore and hesitate to touch what works.
