This is the libcurl error code, and corresponds to the CURLE_GOT_NOTHING
error.  Unfortunately, it's not clear to me what this error means.  It's
definitely a transport error of some sort, though.  Do you have a slow
connection perhaps, or an http proxy server between you and the website?

Unfortunately I'm able to run the get just fine from here, so I'm not sure
how to figure out what the problem is.  :(
