The download failed from the default URL (ftp.linux.hr)
so i used 'nluug' instead as it is usually pretty quick.

I've noticed that too-- in package mgr, the top listed repository failed often, and nluug was good.

Suggestion:
Button in download window to "test all connections and use best available", and checkbox to "always do this and don't ask again".

Result, more reliable downloads, fewer clicks, one less thing to think about.
