Comment 1 Henrik 2019-10-22 08:44:57 UTC
Guess the hostname should be data. instead of www.
Comment 2 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2019-10-22 10:52:25 UTC
Is it still reproducible for you? The files download just fine by URLs you specified in original post. Make sure it's not an internet connection problem.
Comment 3 Henrik 2019-10-22 11:40:47 UTC
Yes, I can still replicate.
I have tried without mirror as well.
emaint rsync works and other packages emerges without problems.

I can confirm that the links work in my browser.
I can see that the www.iana link is redirected to data.iana, do not know if that makes any difference for emerge?
Comment 4 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2019-10-22 12:36:59 UTC
It should not make a difference. By default emerge uses wget which knows how to follow complicant HTTP redirect. Can you attach a full fetch log to see where fetch fails?

Log of ebuild fetch
Comment 6 Mark Fenner 2019-10-22 13:44:56 UTC
Similar issue here.  Using either of the failing URLs (for tzcode) directly with a wget and then moving the file to /usr/portage/distfiles allows the ebuild to succeed.
Comment 7 Maciej S. Szmigiero 2019-10-22 14:14:21 UTC
I have hit a similar issue on one of my machines few days ago.

I remember that portage actually wouldn't let the file to be downloaded
until I have manually deleted a temporary file in /usr/portage/distfiles/
(I guess it was 
/usr/portage/distfiles/tzdata2019c.tar.gz.__download__, but I don't
remember exactly).
After removing that file it would (re)fetch it correctly.
Comment 8 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2019-10-22 14:44:19 UTC
dev-portage@, does it sound like a known/new cleanup problem?
Comment 9 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2019-10-22 17:38:28 UTC
Looks like you have a dangling symlink located at /usr/portage/distfiles/tzdata2019c.tar.gz.__download__ that you need to remove. Also, check your FETCHCOMMAND. We've updated FETCHCOMMAND_RSYNC for bug 698046.
