Bug Description

Today a few updates appear in the list of available updates in Update Manager.
I click in "Install Updates", and I get this error message:

Failed to download package files
Check your Internet connection.
Details: Failed to fetch http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt/pool/main/f/firefox-mozilla-build/firefox-mozilla-build_10.0-0ubuntu1_i386.deb Got a single header line over 360 chars

and the process stops here and it doesn't install ANY update!!!!!!!!!!!

If a single package fails to download, it should still download and install all the available, unrelated ones that do not depend on that particular one.

note that the abovementioned repository does have an error, but the issue here is that Update Manager should not abort all updates just because one fails.
