Actual Results:  The Update Agent crashed with the report given in Description.
Even if I only choose to load the evolution package it crashes while accessing
the src rpm.

Expected Results:  well, it should fetch the named rpm from the inet and store
it in /var/spool/up2date

The next thing I would expect is the application not to die - it should simply
recover from the error, writing a log that an error with the faulty package has

Files that are selected to be downloaded not being available is
considered a fatal error. This generally only occurs if there
is some sort of server side problem. The client handles this
the best it can (it tries it a couple times, then exits with
an error message if it continues to fail)
