Unfortunately, this happens from time to time when some package
maintainer(s) suddenly decide to break existing download URLs
for no reason.

I usually refer to the following execellent W3C article on that topic:

There is no general solution this kind of problem. However, we
usually fix them quite quickly in the development version of
mingw-cross-env. So you can simply use our current development
version, which uses the latest release of many packages:


Or you could wait a few days until we start our next release.

In the future I'll try to run Mingw-cross-env releases more
frequently. The current release cycle of about two months is
way too slow.
