Hmmmm....the mirror I'm currently being sent to

"This is located at on the USA East coast."

which is possibly not the mirror you're connecting to (it might help
somebody track down the breakage if you tell us which one you're ending
up at) is providing a perfectly wonderful certificate with the name
"".  Even if you've broken your CA root certificate store
somehow, you really shouldn't be getting a hostname mismatch.

So I'd say that either something is broken on at least one mirror at
least temporarily or you're ending up somewhere bad.

What happens if you explicitly specify a different mirror?
