McAfee have notoriously shaky update servers. Might be that you just
hit an "unupdated" mirror. This (or similar) things happen from time
to time both with their http and ftp mirrors. Very irritating. I've
put a blurb or two about it in the wiki... I've been trying to use the
speedownload address for a while, which seemed to be better... you can
try ...

Anyway, it might be that, or something entirely unrelated:-).
