Seems to work again, but really…
- why can't this use a local cache as fallback in the first place
- why do I end up with a screwed state where some packages look as "installed" even though they are not installed at all

and why is the glass half empty :P
It wasn't down. There was at least one file per minute fetched every minute of every hour that day. Upwards of 2000 files fetched successfully within the hour of that timestamp.
