I can reproduce on my Windows machine, but not on GNU/Linux.  Maybe some
line endings are getting converted?

I also noticed that doing (setq package-check-signature nil), M-x
package-refresh-contents, (setq package-check-signature t), lets
packages be installed successfully.  It's only the archive-contents that
fails to verify.
