Try renaming C:\hp\hpsmh\data\webapp-data\vcrepository\catalogindex.xml and try to download again.

Re: Automatic Repository Update Failed

You may also try to change the account under which the HP Version Control Repository Manager service runs. By default it should be configured to run as local system account. My firewall settings prevented local system account access to FTP. Once I changed the service to run under my administrative account, everything worked fine.

Changing the logon service to use my admin account also worked for me. Thanks for the hint!
