    It looks like you just had a couple extra ... at the end on your link. Try: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/ditty-news-ticker.zip

    Actually, it looks like this is an issue with with plugin repository that is currently being worked on: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/15138

    I found that if I tried to install it a few times, it usually worked after 1 or 2 attempts.

    Hopefully they'll resolve this issue soon.

    After looking at that thread more I noticed it was a couple years old. I have made a new ticker here: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/23320

    I switched my stable tag to the latest version as opposed to just 'trunk' and the failed downloads seem to have gone away. Marking as resolved.
