Bingo. Can you reproduce it? The default timeout for LWP is 180secs,
so it takes 3min until the connection breaks. Plus, we retry 5 times,
that can take quite some time.

What is a suggested timeout? 10sec?

If you have an easy way to reproduce it, can you try the following patch
to TLDownload.pm:
--- TLDownload.pm	(revision 23077)
+++ TLDownload.pm	(working copy)
@@ -45,6 +45,7 @@
     agent => "texlive/lwp",
     keep_alive => 3,
     env_proxy => 1,
+    timeout => 10,
   $self->{'ua'} = $ua;
   $self->{'enabled'} = 1;

and tell me if it helps?

Best wishes
