  Modified files:
  Instead of selecting a mirror and failing if it is inaccessible, keep
  track of which mirrors we have tried and try a different mirror if we
  fail when trying to download the SSL public key or the snapshot
  Failures later in the download process will not result in switching to
  a different mirror, for two reasons:
  1. If is very unlikely that a mirror will fail partway through the
  process of downloading updates.
  2. If we switched from a more recently updated mirror to a less
  recently updated mirror partway through the download process, we would
  end up failing anyway because we would be trying to fetch files which
  the second mirror didn't have yet.
