urpmi how to avoid some files missing error (tho works on retry)

mandrake 9.2
If I urpmi a package I often get a urpmi error similar to the following example
Installation failed, some files are missing:
You may want to update your urpmi database
If I explictly urpmi <the file in question> however it will then work fine.
Can I avoid this error - eg with a longer timeout somewhere?
It seems a needless effort having to hand select each one
