the problem was found out to be a local proxy that returns a web page
with some "user friendly" text instead of a 404: wget is tricked in
downloading it and bitbake doesn't know it should go on trying to
fetch the package from a mirror.
I'm working around this with manual downloads, since it's not
happening very often
I wonder if trying again the download from another source after a
checksum failure would be helpful or just lead to worse problems
