Like Uwe, it works for me, so I don't really know what's going wrong for you. I would guess from the message that it is the download that is failing, rather than a problem on your system: you might want to just try again, or specify a different repository (via menus, "Repository | Change package repository..."). You might also need to specify a proxy, if that's how your system is set up. (You do this in "Connection settings" in the change repository dialog.)

Beyond that, I'd echo Uwe's suggestion to ask on a MikTeX list.
