These contain other reports of hash sum and compression errors, I
don't see anyone else claiming to be experiencing the 404 issue that
you report.  It is possible they are related, though I wouldn't make
that connection just yet.

Does the 404 error occur every time you update and for precisely the
same files, or is intermittent?

The intermittent hash sum errors are a known issue with a solution
being worked on – no need to discuss them here.
