Usually, that's caused by an incomplete tarfile. It would be a good idea
to look at the distinfo file for the package that it stops on, and check
the size line such as:

Size (teTeX/teTeX-src-1.0.7.tar.gz) = 8040192 bytes

If your .tar.gz is quite different in size, maybe you had a cutoff

This also sounds like something was missing once the tar file was
