I had errors from curl due to install creating a ~root/.curlrc file which
subsequently caused troubles.

I understood it to mean :

OK - may be retry
Abort - Stop this download
Skip - Ignore this file

Whatever I did, I had to reclick on Abort/Skip lots of times, and I couldn't
Abort the Update because focus would go to popup.

So reproduce it by setting --proxy option in .curlrc to something invalid and
you will very quickly see what the Bug reporter means.

This error condition is not handled gracefully and because it's YaST I don't
like killing it off, so I wind up clicking on all packages, till I get
eventually to end of process.
