Indeed, it is an apt issue. I straced apt about it, and somehow the apt
process decides it has a md5 mismatch, after calling the ftp method
to fetch the .deb package. 

An easy workaround is getting the packages with apt-get upgrade, and then
installing the .deb.FAILED packages in /var/cache/apt/archives/partial
with dpgk -i.

Kind regards
