Setup remembers the packages and versions installed, separately from the last
mirror used for downloads, so just pick another close mirror and use it.


which explains that mirrors are polled regularly to check they are current, and
dropped temporarily from the mirror list, if not up to date with the latest
packages and versions.
"So, it is expected that from, time-to-time, your site may fall off the mirror
list temporarily."
You could just wait to see if your mirror returns to the list, if it is the only
mirror close to you on the Internet.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
