I was getting the same issue when grabbing the updates yesterday from
tds.net via the mirror-slackware-current script.  For some reason
slackpkg ran correctly, after running slackpkg to grab the updates the
mirror script was able to successfully connect.

This may be due to an unusually high activity level or there could be
something deeper going on in the servers.

-Thank You,
