No.  First I tried to rsync, but that failed.  Then I downloaded
install-tl-unx.tar.gz, but that failed with the cited error message.  (I
managed it to work by providing a --location, but IMHO that should at
least be mentioned on the install page).

After that, I read on the ml that the -x switch doesn't work on
debian/ubuntu systems, and I decided to rather rsync the tlnet than
doing a network installation (having a weak net connection and the
reports of Martin in mind).
