Zypper update Permission Denied

Hi everyone,

Let me present myself as a person with limited knowledge about Linux Administration. I need to update a Linux system currently running with the following version:

PRETTY_NAME=“SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications 12”

To SLES for SAP Applications 12 SP3.

After reviewing few videos about how to proceed, I’m trying with command zypper update, however I’m getting the following error:

Permission to access ‘https://updates.suse.com/SUSE/Updates/SLE-SAP/12-SP3/x86_64/update/repodata/repomd.xml?v7UJeGUtXosuEEIKE8j41m2J-A0WAIxG8LPtw7T2Y7IC6pL53zF0zTG233J1CIIuovnYZyIo57A_Ybh1tq6atHStOnmp8T1NjSyYnNp8TTOrBimlJRbD231-cXr1yby8g20dDUOwE_Y’ denied.

I have googled but not able to find a clear answer on how to overcome the issue.

I would be very grateful if someone here could provide some directions about how to fix the issue.

Thanks in advance,

I had a similar issue, where I needed to update locally a package to fix this.

Best wishes.

Thanks a lot for these insights, much appreciated. I’ll try and see how I go.
