The reason for your problem is the following situation: Debian potato
2.2r6 was released a few days ago, but the jigdo files are still for
2.2r5. However, the moment 2.2r6 was released, old 2.2r5 packages were
deleted from the servers, and other files (e.g. policy.pdf.gz) were
updated with newer versions. Consequently, 2.2r5 can no longer be
downloaded with jigdo.
However, there are now 2.2r6 jigdo files available at
<http://cdimage.debian.org/cd-images/jigdo/2.2_rev6/>. (Oops, I still

Note that rsync *is* available for Windows. I think there's a Windows
binary in the old pseudo image kit package for Windows, which is
hopefully still available from
*However*, it is possible that the old 2.2r5 CD images have already
been deleted from the CD mirrors, so there might be nothing for you to
rsync against. In that case I'm afraid you will have to retry with the
2.2r6 jigdo files.
