I have a hammer called the Bug Smasher on my desk for those occasions :-)

Do you happen to be behind a firewall. You may need to set up a proxy server
in YaST. YaST/System/Sysconfig editor/Network/Proxy. Then set the
appropriate values.

If you already know one of the servers, you can turn this off in the
Sysconfig Editor under System/Online Update.
