Description

We have seen in multiple occasions that this error

/var/hda/platform/html/lib/downloader.rb:100:in `write': "\xFF" from ASCII-8BIT to UTF-8 (Encoding::UndefinedConversionError)

weird as it reads, it's a sign that downloading of some app asset (like the source tarball or whatnot) failed.

the actual reason for the error may be that it expects some binary and it gets a 404 page or similar instead.

Sourceforge is on it's knees

We're sorry -- the Sourceforge site is currently in Disaster Recovery mode, and currently requires
the use of javascript to function.  Please check back later.

Wow.

Correcting this issue with sourceforge will definitely prevent the disappearing/moving downloads that they have been doing over the years.

I will do my best to keep a closer eye on app install errors.

i believe this issue has been fixed by this commit and a new release of the platform has been done as 7.4.1. We ought to not see any more issues related to bad downloads any more (well, save any catastrophic conditions).
