I've seen this also, most recently when installing Cygwin on my laptop.
 My guess (and it's pure speculation) is that it's some sort of
limitation on size of the download.  The workaround (well, it worked for
me) was to select fewer packages to install and build up your installed
system piecemeal.  That took a bit longer, but seemed to work out the
same in the end.

I have no idea if it's a problem with setup or simply a limitation set
at your chosen download site, nor even how to tell which it might be.
