Disk space could still be the problem.  Depends on what you still need to 
download and how big it is.

If you're really looking for details, check the email archives on this.
The reason for the differing directories, what they contain, and even 
utilities for "cleaning them up" have been discussed before.  However, 
you should not be ending up with the exact same files from each mirror,
at least if you keep your set of mirrors constant.  Pick the few that 
work best for you and don't change them.  That's the easiest solution for 
this problem.  If you see something that would suggest that a persistent
set of mirrors will give you the same package files for each mirror, 
please provide the list with a list of steps that shows this behavior.
