When a http dependency fails to download, please retry the request. I see a lot of transient errors with sourceforge.

Repro steps

  1. Add http and try to restore.

Expected behavior

Retry like we do with NuGets for x times, then fail.

Actual behavior

Paket version 5.145.6
Downloading to C:\BuildAgent\work\e3efd18142ae7728\paket-files\\
 - Average Download Time: 22 seconds
 - Number of downloads: 1
 - Runtime: 22 seconds
Paket failed with
-> Could not download from ''
-> HttpRequestException: An error occurred while sending the request.
-> WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server
-> SocketException: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond

Known workarounds

Restart paket restore.
