openSuse: Valid metadata not found at specified URL

Problems retrieving package sources in Suse Linux.

Today I had an unsightly error in Suse Linux:

Repository 'SUSE:SLE-15-SP2:GA' is invalid.
[https-download.opensuse.org-c828fe9f|https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15-SP2:/GA/pool/] Valid metadata not found at specified URL

Remove invalid package source URLs

Apparently I had snuck in some invalid package sources here, no idea why. In any case, after some searching with Google I found what I was looking for. All package sources without “Tumbleweed” in the name can go.

The following URLs are necessary and must remain:

After that a “sudo zypper clean”, “sudo zypper refresh” and “sudo zypper update”. Everything then ran through without problems.
