YAST Update problem, won't update anymore


For the past 24 hours or so, whenever I try to update SuSewatcher can't connect to the server, and a manual update, gives me this error when it's almost done with the patch retrieval process:

Quote:
online_update -k -s
Error retrieving patches: ERROR(You:Error parsing patch description.)[Error parsing 'Deltas' attribute. Line ' xorg-x11-server-6.8.2-100_100.4.i586.delta.rpm 245406 3ad5216c49cc61665280daa091d520e8 xorg-x11-server-6.8.2-100 1126567701 3e051563544c6ffdf167c19a999566c4' doesn't have form 'filename size md5sum name-edition-release buildtime srcmd5sum seq'.]
Is one of my files corrupt, or are the update servers having trouble?

Makes me think it's not the Yast client's fault, but the servers's?
Can anyone confirm this?

I'd also think it's something wrong with the server. I can't even get a connection right now. Maybe we have to wait until they fixed the problem.

I tried all German Update servers now but nothing helped
It looks like some needed information is missing :-(

I also tried to install that patch by hand but this didn't helped....

Thanks god, I'm not alone

OK

Here's the workaround, not nice, but working:
Use the Novel/SuSE Update server. I'm just updating....
