Imho this is something that can be improved in anacanda, e.g. make it use 
another mirror in case an rpm is missinga and in case an rpm is missing, it 
could update its metadata and recalculate which new rpms could be used to 
finish the installation, or it could first download every rpm and then 
install them. When anaconda supports adding repositories with updates, this 
problem could also occur for normal installs.
