SuSE YOU will not update

i get "Unable to check for updates". this is a recent install, are there no updates because all my files are current? if so, i would believe it would say "Updates not needed" or something to that effect. any help would be awsome.

Hate to suggest this as i'm sure you might have already tried it -- but sometimes people miss the easy solutions while looking for complicated ones.

1) Check when you are runninh YOU that you have an active working Internet Connection

2) Ensure you are using a valid FTP server to get your updates from -- it is possible you've either chosen a restricted site or one where there is so much traffic that you can't currently download

In any case try a different FTP site -- as far as I've seen for various releases of SUSE the YOU is an excellent method of updating your system.
