Neither is the relatively new mechanism for incuding the md5sum and
sha256sum in the recipe. Unless you add the "name" parameter (or the
md5sum and sha256sum for that SRC_URI happens to already be in
checksum.ini) you will probably see another failure when it attempts to
validate the archive it has been downloaded. Either way, I think Thomas'
suggestion may be right.
