I'm in the same situation, and I'm trying everything and anything to get past it. No go.

After browsing the forums I saw a solution that fixed it for me. It looks as if there is a default 60 second timeout and if the download hasn't finished in 60 seconds it reports the error and fails.

Changing the target on the short cut to set a different timeout fixed the problem, and the patch downloaded. The amended line for the target is:
"C:\Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online.exe" -autopatchtimeout 1000

I think the paramater is in seconds i.e. 1000 seconds. The patch then downloaded in 65 seconds at my very poor broadband speed. So if you have a low connection speed then add the parameter - or get a faster connection. I did both - I now have an 18 mb broadband speed and don't have the problem
