That is not "so buggy
"; it does exactly what it is programmed to do. Not trying other mirrors is not a bug, it simply isn't programmed to do it.

3 or 4 people reporting this (assuming it is the same issue; because that isn't sure at all), is hardly "so many people
". Plus! gets downloaded and installed thousands of times each day.
Regardless, yes it might be handy to have an offline installer again. But try to put things in perspective though.
Also, please don't cross post the same thing across multiple threads guys. It wont help and it also isn't allowed.
