(sorry if this isn't in the right component)
I've been having persistent problem with one of the download mirrors. When trying to install plugins, many of them fail due to inconsistent file size. See the attached log.
The problem is with one specific mirror in Japan, and it is my misfortune to always be redirected to this specific mirror, which means I basically cannot install most plugins. I can only work around this by searching for other mirrors, and installing the hpi manually, and not through the update center.
Two problems then:
1. This mirror is highly unreliable. It's been manifesting these problems for a few weeks now. Not sure why it passes the automated mirror checks - do they test file sizes?
2. When the update center fails with one mirror, it should probably try with others. Were this the policy, this problem would not have debilitated me so much.
