I did a little research, since I had to update my sjlatex
files as well, following a reinstall.

-sjlatex install- simply downloads the ancillary files listed
in the sjlatex package @ http://www.stata-journal.com/production/
and put them in a directory of your choice.

Trying to download the ancillary files manually...

. net from http://www.stata-journal.com/production/
<snip>
. net get sjlatex
checking sjlatex consistency and verifying not already installed...
file http://www.stata-journal.com/production/sjlatex/main.bib not found
server says file temporarily redirected to
http://www.stata-journal.com/error/404.html
could not copy http://www.stata-journal.com/production/sjlatex/main.bib
(no action taken)
r(601);

... will tell you that at least one file (main.bib) is missing
from the online repository - or should not have been listed in
the sjlatex.pkg file as downloadable. This is why -sjlatex install- 
fails with a less than informative error message. 

I guess that the maintainers of http://www.stata-journal.com/ 
should get the online repository back in synch.
