Blackberry Eclipse Plugin SDK Download Failed (SDK 5.0)

Hi, I want to download the 5.0 SDK to make a blackberry application available to users who dont have a new blackberry device and they cannot update their phones to the Blackberry OS 6 or 7. When I try to download the 5.0 SDK from the Install new Software option in Eclipse, it fails to download a .jar file from the Blackberry site, is the site having problems or do you guys have a way to fix this problem.?


Error is :
