Thank you for answer.
I have also thouht that it is only a transient glitch, but I have the same
problem with w32api-dev package last three days. I have tried it many
times on two different computers (differents internet providers but both
in czech republic)/

Yes, I get this sporadically with updates too. Sometimes an update works
100%, but I've also had up to ~10 "download failed" messages in one
update, all of which were resolved by running the command again. I
suspect that this error is load related and mostly to do with
SourceForge being slow to respond. I wonder if mingw-get could be made
more resilient by simply increasing a timeout somewhere?

$ rm /var/cache/mingw-get/packages/w32api-3.1*
$ mingw-get install w32api-dev

Perhaps a problem with your local SF mirror. You'll need to take that
up with them; there's not much we can do about it. As a temporary work
around, you might try a manual download, and place the tarball in your
c:/MinGW/var/cache/mingw-get/packages directory; (my /var is an MSYS
mount for my c:/MinGW/var). Once it's there, mingw-get won't try to
download it again.
And please, don't top-post; it makes it hard to preserve context when
replying. I eventually, (and quite quickly), lose interest in trying to
help persistent top-posters.
