Reposync fails when trying to download packages from Red Hat


I am RHEL 5 x86_64 server to download the "rhel-x86_64-server-5" repository from Red Hat using reposync and it keeps on failing with errors. I tried it multiple times and updated few packages and then fails again. I have pasted the error I got below. Please help.

No, I have disabled the SELinux feature on this machine.

I have opened a case with redhat, they have no clue either. They suggested that there could be a problem with my proxy server, which I verified and found nothing wrong with it.

Thanks for help, appreciate you time....this is a very peculiar problem, I have done this before when I was maintaining depot servers but I never ran into these issues.
