I don't know about the specific case, but there is a bug here.
The difficulty is that HTTP download errors are reported in a strange
way. The core method returns a string instead of a MIMEDocument.
Then, the URL code converts the error message to a MIMEDocument that
starts with the text "error".
Errors should be reported better. One refactoring would be to make an
"DownloadError" subclass of MIMEDocument. Then, we could robustly track
which downloads are errors, without breaking compatibility with code
that simply displays the result whether it was an error or not (e.g.,
I do not know a quick fix. The Universes download code looks correct on inspection, but clearly there is still a problem somewhere.
