RE: Issues installing packages from melpa

I will say the error is different based on the version of emacs that I use. 
When I use emacs 27.2, I get the option to install the package before it 
errors. I'll paste the text directly in the email if that makes it easier. 

Here is the output for 27.2

Leaving directory  /arc/home/m1jtr02/.emacs.d/elpa/abl-mode-20210923.950

Here is the output from emacs 26.3

These default coding systems were tried to encode text
in the buffer   *temp* :
  (utf-8-unix (2 . 4194187) (11 . 4194189) (13 . 4194253) (15
  . 4194267) (18 . 4194238) (19 . 4194291) (23 . 4194194) (28
  . 4194195) (29 . 4194264) (30 . 4194275) (32 . 4194284))
However, each of them encountered characters it couldn t encode:
  utf-8-unix cannot encode these: \213 \215 \315 \333 \276 \363 \222 \223 \330 

Click on a character (or switch to this window by  C-x o 
and select the characters by RET) to jump to the place it appears,
where  C-u C-x =  will give information about it.

Select one of the safe coding systems listed below,
or cancel the writing with C-g and edit the buffer
   to remove or modify the problematic characters,

I just noticed that the first bytes "^_" (hex 1f) and "\213" (hex 8B) are the 
magic bytes for gzip. That means the connection was probably aborted before 
enough data was transmitted for decoding.
