--- Comment #70 from Andreas Färber <afaerber@xxxxxxxx> ---
I've managed to recover my two affected systems as follows:

1) Try "zypper -vvv ref" to see from where it downloads -
most likely. ping the host name from a working system to obtain the IP address
and enter it in /etc/hosts, as Stefan had suggested.
2) The download server might redirect you elsewhere, so if zypper dup still
crashes, browse for some existing rpm on and do a wget
with that URL, e.g., "wget";
- this will show you where you're getting redirected to, in my case Ping that second host name again to obtain the IP address and
enter it in /etc/hosts, too.
3) Now "zypper up glibc" should work, downloading and installing a single
package. The symptoms should be gone now!
4) Don't forget to remove your two temporary entries in /etc/hosts.
5) Perform a "zypper dup" for a full system upgrade to latest Tumbleweed.

Thanks to Stefan, Petr and Richie for helping resolve this.

On two systems that I had not updated to the affected glibc, I could simply do
a "zypper dup" as usual.
