Hey there! When we've run into this error in the past we've had to do more investigating, such as performing an strace with the package command, to see specifically what is causing that error to happen. If you'd like us to check that out, we would need root SSH access to the source machine, but you could open a ticket using the link in my signature.

If you'd like to try and move the data manually we have a guide for that work here:

Thinking of moving my site over but apprehensive of the announcements of new pricing structures for cpanel? Although having said that, i believe cPanel, plesk and WHMCS are all owned by the same group anyway so perhaps unavoidable hikes?
