I was trying to do a vanilla installation of Latex following the
instructions on this website.

But while installing I got the following error message, I tried multiple
times over the past few hours. But it still gave the same error with
different mirrors used. Hoping you can help fix the issue.

sudo ./install-tl

from a different mirror and/or wait a few minutesand try again; usually
this is because of transient updates.If problems persist, feel free to
