command 'zypper --no-refresh --non-interactive install --no-recommends --auto-agree-with-product-licenses -t product PackageHub' failed
Error: zypper returned (106) with 'Error building the cache:
[SUSE_Package_Hub_x86_64:SUSE-PackageHub-15-SP1-Standard-Pool|http://rmtserver/repo/SUSE/Backports/SLE-15-SP1_x86_64/standard/?credentials=SUSE_Package_Hub_x86_64] Valid metadata not found at specified URL
Some of the repositories have not been refreshed because of an error.'


Workaround :
Apply the same command twice. The 2nd time properly succeeds in activating Package Hub repositories without any error.

Solution :
SUSE will correct the inappropriately used GPG keys.


Certain Package Hub repositories were inappropriately signed using different GPG keys.
