org:org-plus-contrib does not tar cleanly into directory #4000
I get this error at spacemacs startup. I only have the emacs-lisp, org layers.
installing org:org-plus-contrib... [1/1]An error occurred while installing org-plus-contrib (error: (error Package does not untar cleanly into directory org-plus-contrib-20151123/))
(Spacemacs) --> installing org:org-plus-contrib... [1/1]
Ok, I resolved the problem by actually using the right URL:
- ("org" . "http://org-mode.org/elpa/") + ("org" . "http://orgmode.org/elpa/")
Here's what I did to try to debug the problem:

I did not have any tar before. I added \usr\bin from PortableGit to the path. Now, I think that 'tar' is being used.
From cmd.exe, this is what I get.
I am not sure, if the same tar is accessible from emacs. If someone can tell me how to do that, I will report back.
The issue still persists, after the above tar is accessible from cmd.exe.
I do have access to the tar provided by Git (see below).
C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0;C:\Program Files (x86)\Riverbed\Steelhead Mobile;C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\OpenCL SDK\3.0\bin\x86;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\OpenCL SDK\3.0\bin\x64;C:\Users\cande\Applications\Continuum\Anaconda3;C:\Users\cande\Applications\Continuum\Anaconda3\Scripts;C:\Users\cande\Applications\Continuum\Anaconda3\Library\bin;C:\Users\cande\Applications\Continuum\Anaconda3;C:\Users\cande\Applications\Continuum\Anaconda3\Scripts;C:\Users\cande\Applications\PortableGit\cmd;**\Users\cande\Applications\PortableGit\usr\bin;**C:\Users\cande\AppData\Local\Pandoc\
This is the only place in the emacs source that I can find that warning
To me that suggests that it's a bad tar file somehow, but it also is not an error. It's just producing a message.
Looks like some access restrictions on my side (see screenshot). I see that when I try to download the package from the browser. So, definitely not an issue from spacemacs. Sorry for the noise.
Either it is the anti-virus (McAfee) or something else, that is blocking access. I will try to figure out. If someone has an idea, please let me know.
