Greetings, Aleksey Midenkov!

Because your internet is bad?

It do use cache, if checksum is correct.

> How possible I may overcome this situation?

Fix your internet, or download packages where it is better.
If you want partial download support in setup - patches are welcome, I'm sure.

With best regards,
