Is there the task for "Run Download Cacher Tool - SuSE Linux Enterprise"?
Download cachers have been deprecated for SUSE. It is recommended the usage of our Download Plugins instead.
That because of the nature of endpoint dependency resolution: for a given patch, it is unknown which files to cache until runtime. Each endpoint may require different dependency files. Therefore it does not
make sense to have a "cacher" tool to run before running all the fixlets, since the fixlets determine which files to download at runtime. After the the first time the fixlet runs on a single machine, the files are downloaded by the plugin, and cached for all other machines to retrieve. This is why there is no cacher for the SLE sites.
