I ran the setup-5.6.1+3f4a6a7-x64.exe (MikTeX Net Installer) on my PC (Windows 10 Pro) in an attempt to download the complete MikTeX distribution (Version: 14-Oct-2023) from the source depicted in the first image, highlighted in blue. Unfortunately, an error message occurs, as seen in the second image. Upon reviewing the logfile, I observed the following traces:

downloading https://mirror.foobar.to/CTAN/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/autosp.tar.lzma (expecting 271445 bytes)...

An error occurred:

I've managed to resolve the issue independently. I had been awaiting the release of the MikTeX distribution (Version: 26-Oct-2023). Fortunately, there are no issues with this particular version, and I have successfully downloaded the complete MikTeX distribution (Version: 26-Oct-2023) from the source indicated in the image below, highlighted in blue.
