It shows the following error when trying to update or refresh using zypper, but I can access these links from Google Chrome.

Timeout exceeded when accessing 'http://download.opensuse.org/debug/distribution/leap/42.3/repo/non-oss/content'

I've tried disabling the IPV6 in Yast and used

sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1


sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6=1

I also added the above lines to the /etc/sysctl.conf file. (I rebooted the system each time.)


The download server was very recently hit with a catastrophic hardware failure, try again in a few hours or tomorrow.
