Multiple people in forums since yesterday have been unable to upload to via cmdline. has one. When I try I with two different 15.1 installations I repeatedly get "Paste failed :-(". I noticed when yesterday having trouble connecting to B.O.O., forums and elsewhere on, among the delay messages was "waiting for" that just sat unchanged in the status bar.

The problem still exists, and gets discussed on the opensuse@o.o mailinglist currently.

One user reported that replacing http with https in the susepaste script helps, but a) I can't reproduce that and b) susepaste in tumbleweed was changed and got the -s parameter.

Funnily creating the paste actually works (you'll find it if you check on ) - but the script tells you "Paste failed :-("

Some testing (adding an "echo") indicates that $URL seems to be empty, while I'd expect it to be set from the curl ... | sed ... call.

If I drop the sed call, the curl result includes

< location:

but the script does

sed -n 's|<\ Location:\ ||p'

with an uppercase L in Location, and unsurprisingly that doesn't match the lowercase location header.

Do you have any idea why the server returns lowercase header names and, more important, can you please fix that? ;-)

Felix, your last comment indicates that the fix needs to be done in the susepaste script. Can you please open a bugreport for susepaste?

At this point I see this is stuck at maintenance/release managers with Leap 15.1, nothing we can really do or assist with, it's done from our side
