I think you just do the configure bit again (right click the updater).
Select new repositories.

Related complaint:

If you ever invoke Yast Installation Source function without being connected
to the net (and thereby unable to reach your selected repositories) it
summarily kicks them out, and they don't always come back, even after
reconnecting to the net.

I wish it would just deactivate them and leave them there.
