Zfs from filesystems project: Resource /repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15-SP3:/GA/pool/ - An error occurred during repository initialization

In summary, installed Leap over my TrueNAS having 4 HDs with the simple mirror format, no redundancy. I opted to download the “zfs.ymp” for installation, the /GA resources are not available even after a successful install on the second attempt:

Some of the repositories have not been refreshed because of an error.

however there is a /CA repository. My question is, is this project available or can I edit and change GA to CA and be successful?

or just remove the repo from my repo settings and try the cli version:

zypper addrepo https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/filesystems/15.5/filesystems.repo
zypper refresh
zypper install zfs

You used 1-click installation and pulled in several incompatible/not existing repositories (from SLE-15-SP 1 to 4). Show

Repositories 3 to 6 and 8 to 20 can be removed as they are from 1-click installations and invalid for Leap 15.5.
Only repo 7 is needed for the zfs installation.

NEVER use 1-click installation. Only use expert installation via the CLI way as you have shown in the last part of your first post.
