YaST Online Update Fails with Patch error......


YaST Online Update (YOU) on a fresh SuSE 9.1 Pro install fails when I try to continue after selecting a server with this error in "Details" :

Patch: fetchmsttfonts-3


and that's it....
any ideas?
it does this for every single server

the true type fonts are no longer available, unselect the patch.

I haven't selected any patches, this is at the server selection screen when I select a server & click 'next'....

it does this for every server.

I have yet to get to the patch selection screen.

although I didn't find the file in that directory, I did find it in a subdirectory of that......

but removing it didn't solve the problem either.

the actual filename was fetchmsttfonts-3

still getting same error.


*EDIT
I should have clarified the path on this one, the full path is on post #7

an 'updatedb && locate fetchmsttfonts' only reported 1 result:

/var/lib/YaST2/you/mnt/i386/update/9.1/scripts/fetchmsttfonts-3

which is the one I removed

My solution

What I did was to correct the time on the box, and then reinstall the suse-build-key package. Then it worked.
