Download error for TBB when building 6.08.06

When building 6.08.06 on CentOS 7 (GCC 4.8.5), I get the following error:

[ 54%] Performing download step (download, verify and extract) for 'TBB'
CMake Error at TBB-stamp/TBB-download-RelWithDebInfo.cmake:49 (message):

I have thrown the -Dbuiltin_tbb=ON switch to cmake. Setting this switch off fixes the problem (tbb-devel is installed on the native OS so I guess that saves me). In the error file, I see:

A previous post, from 4 years ago, reported the same error, but that was due to a server outage. Is that what is happening here? I have been getting this error on multiple nodes since yesterday.

I realize that this is an old version, but it would be nice to depend on ROOT itself to supply the tbb functionality for this legacy version that I am supporting for others.

Please read tips for efficient and successful posting and posting code

ROOT Version: 6.08.06
Platform: CentOS7
Compiler: GCC4.8.5

Wow. Great. Will give it a try…

ROOT 6.08/06 is very old.
If you really really need ROOT 6.08 then try the v6-08-00-patches branch.

But a better idea is to take the latest release.

Both suggestions worked, the patch for the download sites alone, and using the patch branch. Thank you WEC!
