This usually happens if you don't have 'autorefresh' turned on and forgot to 
do 'zypper refresh' too update the repos metadata. The outdated metadata may 
list packages which are no longer available in the repo.

If the previously downloaded packages came from the removed repository, the  
behavior could be ok because removing the repo also invalidates its packages.

In case of doubt please open an bugreport at https://bugzilla.novell.com 
(component: libzypp) and attach your /var/log/zypper.log.
