It pings the domain fine and can connect to the internet. In fact, I am using an SSH from another location to perform the install.

Yes, the non-free firmware is for the network hardware used in IBM Blade Servers. I will keep trying to see if I can overcome this issue.

To me it looks more like a network connectivity problem, because otherwise it should mention something along the lines of "cannot validate signature" or "signature not valid".

Is the non-free firmware needed for network cards?

Also, can you please check if the URL is accessible from the same system using wget or curl, or at least ping the hostname?
