The problem can be slow server response. I had that few times on normal days. Press Retry few times and installation continues.
IMHO, there is no ideal solution. If default is to try few times before pops the window with message asking user decision, than with bad repository it will take forever to download files.

Why not handle it the same way as the reboot messages? They say "System will reboot in xx seconds. [OK] [Cancel]" and automatically count down. Why not have a message like:

"Downloading xyz.rpm failed because of connection timeout. Will retry downloading in xx seconds."

This way, a user sitting in front of the system will get a quick reply from the installer and someone that installs over night is also happy.
