Problem upgrading calibre

The following occurs when I go to install calibre on AMD64 Ubuntu Jaunty:
Quote:
aprilhare@aprilhare-x64-desktop:~$ sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/download_linux_binary_installer').read(); main()"
Enter the installation directory for calibre (Its contents will be deleted!)[/opt/calibre]:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "<string>", line 182, in main
File "<string>", line 147, in download_tarball
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 124, in urlopen
return _opener.open(url, data, timeout)
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 389, in open
response = meth(req, response)
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 502, in http_response
'http', request, response, code, msg, hdrs)
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 427, in error
return self._call_chain(*args)
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 361, in _call_chain
result = func(*args)
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 510, in http_error_default
raise HTTPError(req.get_full_url(), code, msg, hdrs, fp)
urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
aprilhare@aprilhare-x64-desktop:~$
This deleted calibre from my computer and the version in the repositories for Jaunty is 0.4.143+dfsg-1..

It worked for me, too.

However, there was another issue here, one that Kovid might consider.

When the update procedure failed, my /opt/calibre was already purged. Maybe it should be backed up (say, /tmp?) until upgrade procedure has finished the download, allowing upgrade procedure to recover from such a failure without wiping the previous installation?

TIA.
