Yast error (Read error)

I am running a fresh install from a ftp. I am trying to check for updates using yast2. I get this error when I run YOU or any other sort of net update. I am not sure if this is a folder on my harddrive or the remote one, but the server I am trying to install from is the default (sourceforge). I have tried with other servers and still get this error.

online_update -k -s
ERROR(Media:file not found): Unable to get './i386/update/9.0/patches/directory.3' or to read the directory (Couldn't cd to suse).

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Yast error

Try to use another server for the update.
Sometimes the server directory layouts differ ... even if they shouldn't.

lol, I am a complete moron. I tried like 4 servers and none worked before I posted. I decided to try one more after your post and it works...

Thanks a ton
