random but frequent download failures "ERROR: The remote file either doesn't exist..." #1727

We use chocolaty to install nmap 7.12 on Windows (2012, 2016 Servers, and Windows 10) but quite often have download failures on nmap (and no download failures on anything else).

I don't think it's a chocolaty problem since it's clearly trying to download and that step fails.

Is there anything we can do on our end? I already put in a check and a retry on the install but it just failed twice in a row.
I've looked at getting chocolaty to have a local cache and it seems rather painful. I'm not sure exactly what the chocolaty packing does (does silent nmap install, starts a service maybe?).
