error trying to add repository


On 10.10, I'm trying add in

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...xUbuntu_10.10/ ./"

Err http://download.opensuse.org ./ Packages
404 Not Found
Err http://download.opensuse.org Sources
404 Not Found
W: Failed to fetch http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...0.10/./Release Unable to find expected entry Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

W: Failed to fetch http://download.opensuse.org/reposit..././Packages.gz 404 Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://download.opensuse.org/reposit....10/Sources.gz 404 Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


And yet I can see them here:
http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...xUbuntu_10.10/
