Hard to say what went wrong here, percent-encoding has been around for
23 years now (originally defined in RFC 1630) and is valid even for
URLs consisting purely of "normal" 7-bit ASCII characters.  It might
help if you provided the error message and the URL that failed.

That sounds as if you installed HEAD instead of netbsd-8, but it's
hard to guess without knowing what exactly you downloaded.
