openSuse Update asks for installation DVD

Interesting problem with openSuse, when updating the operating system it wants me to insert the installation DVD.

Quickly make an update of the system with “sudo zypper update“. In the middle of the system then stops and wants to have the installation DVD or ISO image inserted.

Remove installation media from Yast

In the end, it turned out that the ISO file was still included in the software repositories. This can be removed via Yast.

From the list then simply remove the cd://. After that the installer ran through.
