    Unable to upgrade from Leap 42.2 to 43.3


    Hi,
    I am using the guide on
    (https)://kamarada.github.io/en/2017/08/03/how-to-upgrade-from-opensuse-leap-422-to-423/#.Wsqv7UxFy4w
    to upgrade from Leap 42.2 to 43.3. I've done everything stated step by step until I switch to a purely textual interface, go to init 3 and then zypper --no-refresh dup. I then get the messages:
    Download (curl) error for '(http)://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/42.3/oss/X86_64/drm-kmp-default-4.9.33_k4.4.126_48-13.3.X86_64.rpm'
    Error code: Connection failed
    Error message: Could not resolve host: download.opensuse.org Abort, retry, ignore?
    When I tried retry or ignore nothing happened except I was returned to
    Abort, retry, ignore? When I entered Abort upgrade was terminated.
    I do not know what the above error messages were referring to. It could not have been anything to do with connection to the internet because my windows machine was connected to the internet and was working fine.
    Any ideas as to what went wrong and how things could be put right? All help will be greatly appreciated.

    Could not resolve host
    means you have no internet connection, or at least no name resolving.
    what is output of
    Code:
    ping 8.8.8.8
    ping google.com

    You chose to abort and it stopped upgrading? I am shocked and appalled.

    If you're at init level 3 then unless you have a wired ethernet connection you won't have internet. If you're on wifi then you'll need to set it up.
    Try
    Code:
    nmcli c
    You should get connection id and uuid. If you do
    Code:
    nmcli c up uuid <the uuid> OR id<the id>
