updates.xml showing failed update

I've had this a couple of times in the past month or so - possibly only when we've pushed an RC (though I'm not sure). What happens is I'll check for an update manually and it will fail, but succeed if I try again.

I tried looking into it today and I don't understand why it thinks the update failed. Attached is my updates.xml which clearly shows an integrity error. The hashes and filesizes in it look fine, and match what's on FTP:

The download comes from a CDN, which makes me think something is wrong on that front, but these files are not overwritten, which makes that far less likely. I would expect failures during "final verify" is that were the case, too.

I've got my entire appdir backed up in case any other files would be helpful.
Ben, are you still seeing this?
