While upgrading one of our final SLES 11 SP1 systems I received the following errors when refreshing the repositories:
Retrieving repository ‘SLES11-SP3-Updates’ metadata [error]
Repository ‘SLES11-SP3-Updates’ is invalid.
[|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
Please check if the URIs defined for this repository are pointing to a valid repository.
Warning: Disabling repository ‘SLES11-SP3-Updates’ because of the above error.
/var/log/zypper.log didn’t provide additional details but a check on the SUSE KB unearthed KB7013434.
After upgrading libgpg-error, libgpg-error-32-bit and suse-build-key- from our internal repository server all functions worked as expected.
