No, the problem is related to HEAnet, apparently they only pulled in the 
metadata but not the RPMs. I have no clue why and no means of fixing it 
except hoping that it automatically resolves itself the next time it 

My directory index is based on the packages that are available on my own 
system where HEAnet rsyncs from. And you get redirected to HEAnet for the 
actual download because my server cannot handle the bandwidth for such 

That is why the file is in the index but fails to be downloaded from 
HEAnet. The reason why up2date (or yum or apt) have problems is because 
the metadat did get updated, but not the RPM packages.

This is another weird error caused by HEAnet :-/
