Yeah, a few days ago some of the mirrors in the mirror list were 
upgraded from http:// to https://, and this seems to be an unfortunate 
consequence of the way setup handles that change.

I've re-added the http:// variants to the mirror list, so other people 
won't trip over this, but I guess this migration case needs some special 
handling in setup.
