I'm only guessing here since I haven't looked at the src, but I've 
noticed a couple of times that if the fetch of base fails and then
you retry, it seems as tho the install doesn't overwrite the failed
fetch but actually appends to it. It's not consistent but it gives
an error message very much like what you are seeing. Whenever the
download of base fails before it is complete I always just jump out to
the console and delete the base tarball and restart the dl. I believe
the tarball lives in either /target/tmp or /tmp. 

Like I said....just a guess. Hope it helps tho. :)
