Since November 14th, 2016 the installer (3.4+nmu1ubuntu2) has
consistently failed on new Xenial installations. Before that date it
used to work just fine. Debian version (3.6) works very well on Xenial
and it's distributed to all our machines.

Meanwhile everything works OK on new Trusty installations...

I can see different error messages when running "apt install --reinstall
ttf-mscorefonts-installer" in a loop:

Hash Sum mismatch
The HTTP server sent an invalid Content-Range header
404  Not Found

This seems to be an issue in how update-notifier approach downloads the
fonts (due to server-side changes?) Maybe it is something similar to Bug
#977812. Is there a way to make update-notifier/downloader dump all sent
and received headers?
