I'm wondering if anyone could help me out.

I'm developing an addon which is going OK, but I have an issue when I try and push an update through my repo.

In a nutshell:

- XBMC sees the update and tries, unsuccessfully to download. The log states 'T:3660 DEBUG: ZipManager: not a zip file!'

- If, however, I reduce the size of the update to say under 10MB then it downloads and installs fine.

- I can also install the larger sized update locally through the 'install from zip file' function without any issues.

Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening?

You are using Github as zip location?
