Yes, this is simply an error on my part.  I never intended it to go on further after failing to load an update.  It doesn't make any sense to get them out of order.  The idea was to stop after the first failure, but I forgot to put that check in!  (I was thinking of the case when the server goes offline in the middle of fetching 10 updates.)
