    zypper ar https://package.mapr.com/releases/MEP/MEP-<version>/suse/ maprecosystem
  4. If your connection to the Internet is through a proxy server, you must set the http_proxy environment variable before installation:
    http_proxy=http://<host>:<port>
                  export http_proxy
  5. Update the system package index by running the following command:
