Yes I see something similar. Seems some repo's aren't functioning at this
moment. Usually when this happens it is quickly repaired though.

3 or 4 of the many repo's I have on my install list failed..

Just wait a while..maybe a few hours.

P.S. Could be any number of things..perhaps they're updating the servers
right now.

Yes... there was a change. I just picked a hardcoded update area for now.
Sigh... we really need to figure this stuff out.

SUSE 7 slow updates
SUSE 8 slow updates
SUSE 8.1 lightning fast updates
SUSE 10.1 whoops
SUSE 10.2 whoops part 2
SUSE 10.3 found something slower than SUSE 7 updates
