    Not sure you have a problem.
    Seems like past week or so there have been no cooker updates for 2009.0.
    Last change I show is 6-Sep.

    Still lots of updates going on, and ftp.free.fr, ftp-stud.de and
    ftp.mirrorservice.org seem to have them. However cooker 'updates' are
    actually made to the 'main' and 'contrib' repositories, not to
    the 'updates' one, so you need to use urpmi.update -a rather than
    urpmi.update --update.

    The "updates" repos for cooker are not used. Updated packages are placed
    directly in main, contrib and non-free. I get around 100 updates daily. (I
    do have Gnome, KDE3 and KDE4 installed.)

    Tag the main, contrib and non-free repos as update sources or
    use 'urpmi --auto-update' from the CLI.

    I hadn't seen any updates recently, I have rc1 installed on my laptop,
    dual booting with Doze. However today I find the wireless won't connect
    so after plugging a LAN cable into ath0 I got 495 updates!
    I'll wait till the updates have finished but this Atheros wireless is a
    pain, seems to work whenever it wants to. Seen in hardware, but when I
    try to set up a wireless connection I just get the option to use
    ndiswrapper with a windows driver.
    Yet after installation it worked correctly, being seen as an atherosXXXXX
    chipset and connected faultlessly.

    I always use urpmi --wget --update --auto-update --auto
    Tried urpmi.update --wget -a
    No change.

    Deleted the carroll mirror, picked another mirror,
    Ran urpmi --wget --update --auto-update --auto
    No idea if it was because I needed the new rpm packages or if carroll
    mirror is not getting updates.

    It installed 5 rpm packages, restarted and is on the way installing
    428 packages.
