Any other suggestions? Otherwise I'll have to abandon my backed up wubi 8.04 and turn to installing 10.04 and migrating my home.disk.
Are you installing from a cd? If you supply the command line option --skipmd5check that should prevent it from trying to download the MD5 metalink... see if that works or you get some other issue.
