msfupdate failure

The problem has been identified. HTTP responses that use chunked transfers 
will prevent msfupdate from working correctly. A new version will be 
available soon that addresses this problem. Thanks for reporting it, it 
was a combination of dumb-luck and response size that kept this from 
being a blocking problem for most users. Hopefully we can have a 2.5 
release ready by early next week ;-)

The below error is what I get when I try to run msfupdate -u. Does
anyone know what maybe causing this and what would be the best way to
go about fixing it. (NO files have been edited.)
