It's working again. BTW, the setup.log didn't give much information. Just said
that the setup started and ended. The download directories in the path did not
contain a recent setup.ini file. In the end, what worked for me was to change
from Direct connection to Use IE5 settings (but in LAN settings are empty,
and I haven't touched that in a long time). Well, the other thing that was
different was that I ran setup.exe from a cygwin shell and made sure it's the
right one. I(sort of) doubt that this was the issue since all I did was execute
the same thing I was double-clicking on.

I guess, it's also possible that something changed in the repository, I don't
know how to check that.

Thanks for the reply,
