That's OK - for some odd reason wget for Windows prints this warning, but
it can safely be ignored.

jigdo works as expected - see
Why doesn't jigdo work? It downloads some packages and deletes them. I
know it doesn't write them to the iso.tmp file because the file size
Jigdo works just fine - the .iso.tmp file is created at the beginning
with its final size, but filled with zero bytes. Later, parts of it are
overwritten with the downloaded data.
You can tell that jigdo is making progress by looking at the messages
"Found X of the Y files required by the template" that are printed from
time to time. The second value "Y" should decrease. When it reaches zero,
the download is finished.
[FWIW, so many people have reported this "bug" that I'm going to change
the behaviour of the jigdo GUI app not to fill the image with zero bytes
