Install RPM with YAST Software / Package Manager ERROR!


All the sudden I CANNOT get any RPM packages to install when I click install w/Package Manager/YAST! It always worked!! It starts out as normal, refreshes all the mirrors...etc., then I get an Error box, then Yast closes out. The error box reads, "Source/medium not found". It mentions the name of my program I'm installing TWICE. EX>> MplayerMplayer not found. Now why would it say it twice??? No wonder it doesn't work, Its looking for a file that does not exist. Why would all this happen? Hopefully someone here knows why this is happeningm and how to correct it. I can install the rpm's in root at the file location by entering "yast -i <filename>.rpm". Thanks

Error reads as follows

The following packages could not be found on the medium>mplayermplayer. The problem is DEFINITELY that Yast is doubling the package name to be installed, therefore its looking for a package that does not exist. All I need to know is how to fix it. Thanks

You could install the packages manually or using smart package manager instead of YAST.
