Hmm, no, there is no real evidence for that in the log you posted.
Archives are downloaded int /var/cache/apt/archives/partial and only
if the download succeeded, the md5sum is correct, etc is the archive
moved to /var/cache/apt/archives.

Also, after a failed download, the Application Manager should clean
the download cache.  (Apt-get, however, doesn't by default).
