Alas, my provider nor that network at work support IPv6. Still, my
system has IPv6 enabled since roaming around on different networks,
IPv6 may be present, or even necessary there.
(This does not happen all the time, sometimes if I retry a bit later
the system uses IPv4 and everything works.)
The system will always try both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. It just happens
that only the last failed attempt is printed as the error by zypper.
There's a bug for this.
Other things that come into play are re-directs to mirrors. For some
reason we appear to have an extraordinary issue with the networks after
the disk issues last week.
