I am failing to install any software, I keep getting this error:

Retrieving repository 'openSUSE-Leap-42.3-Non-Oss' metadat[\]
Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/42.3/repo/non-oss/repodata/repomd.xml':
Error code: Connection failed
Error message: Failed to connect to download.opensuse.org port 80: Connection refused
  • netstat -pln | grep 80 And also the download error is there, because the file does not exist. – Hunter.S.Thompson Sep 21 '17 at 15:53

The problem seems to be your URL.


Is getting a 404 (Not Found)

on the other hand, maybe you wanted to use this repo.


which is ok.

Try adding that repo to zypper

zypper addrepo <URI>

A more meaningful list of options could be found in Suse Official Manual
