There are many things that can cause such a problem, such as a
misconfigured internet setting on an indivdual comptuer, a
problem with a router on the internet somewhere between Alfred
and www.stata.com, or even a permission problem with the temporary
directory on the local computer.
Alfred should contact Stata Technical Services via
They will take him through a series of steps to help diagnose the
problem. They likely will ask him to
. set more off
. set debug on
. set netdebug on
and then try -update- again. This will produce reams of output
that will be helpful in diagnosing the issue.
