I'm sure someone has a quick explanation:

a) zypper

This fails:

Download (curl) error
Error code: Bad URL
Error message: Protocol http not supported or disabled in libcurl

b) zypper

Works fine. (notice the extra slash between 'Virtualization:'
and 'container'.

Let me quote:

That openSUSE download server still does not support https, is indeed
server problem.
It does follow 301 redirection, but zypper explicitly restricts
redirection to https only in this case. Note that error message
says "Protocol http not supported or disabled in libcurl", not https

Thanks for digging that out, Andrei.

Okay. I think the final message is - we should not be using https://
URLs for download.o.o. Getting every openSUSE mirror to support
https:// is highly unlikely, and getting mirrorbrain to support https
is probably even more unlikely.

I guess I might wonder why zypper prohibits the redirect from https to
http. Firefox doesn't seem to mind.
