I tried installing TL2016 today

I keep getting 

TLUtils::check_file: removing /tmp/bd1BBkrSDi/uEpFRVo_Yx/pdfpagediff.doc.tar.xz, sizes differ:
TLUtils::check_file:   TL=56330, arg=740820
TLPDB::_install_package: downloading did not succeed
Installation failed.
Rerunning the installer will try to restart the installation.
Or you can restart by running the installer with:
  install-tl --profile installation.profile [EXTRA-ARGS]
install-tl: Writing log in current directory: /home/daleif/tmp/install-tl-20160523/install-tl.log

at random places in the package list.

I just rerun it, and when I come back to it some time later, it has given a similar error at a different package.

Any ideas?

I'll see if the Danish mirror is working and try to use that instead
