zypper errors on download.opensuse.org

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/13

If you see error message like below when performing zypper refresh or zypper dist-upgrade, then please inform the opensuse team (for instance Twitter or the #openSUSE-factory IRC channel) as this is part of the aftermath of the download.opensuse.org trouble that started last week.

Permission to access 'http://download.opensuse.org/ports/aarch64/tumbleweed/repo/oss/suse/setup/descr/appdata-icons.tar.gz' denied.

What happened to me with Raspberry Pi 3 and Tumbleweed is below and fixed because after I got in touch: the data restore had worked out OK, but the permissions didn’t.

I got there as the search for “Permission to access ‘http://download.opensuse.org/ports/aarch64/” got me to [WayBack] TUMBLEWEED Zypper Permission to access:

Unfortunately there was a catastrophic issue last week with the openSUSE download system (read: stuff is still broken and not all mirrors are fully functional).
