It's zypp backend message. Seems like your local package cache (at /var/cache/zypp/raw) is damaged for those repositories (adaptation1, eas, jolla, ex9). You can run zypper ref -f as root, to make force repositories update.

If zypper is not available on your device(not installed), you can perform force update command for every mentioned repository: pkcon repo-set-data adaptation1 refresh-now true

But I can't install zypper :)

Do you have URL where I can download rpm ? Thanks

kaulian ( 2014-10-14 15:35:40 +0300 )edit

Then you can run single repository force command for each repository: pkcon repo-set-data adaptation1 refresh-now true

Basil ( 2014-10-14 15:39:59 +0300 )edit

That's seems do not works

[root@Jolla nemo]# pkcon repo-set-data adaptation1 refresh-now true
Erreur fatale: Can't access the given URL

I try for each repository and same error after pkcon have same issue

connection-refused: adaptation1: [|] Échec de la mise en cache du dépôt (4).

Can I try to remove the package cache of zypp ?

Please provide output of cat /etc/zypp/repos.d/ssu_adaptation1_release.repo Either baseurl is missing/wrong, or there is a problem with ssu plugin.

Solved !!

I installed zypper from the mer website repo

then i launch

zypper -v ref -f

i have "gzip command not found"

and that right i don't have gzip (that's a symbolic links to busybox) and i don't know why but i lost /bin/busybox. Why i don't know but that the problem ..

So solved by new installation of busybox package

rpm -iv busybox-1.21.0+git4-1.2.24.armv7hl.rpm --force

I think problem arrived when I play this permissions denied android app. So be careful with android app

Thanks to everybody for help
