Looks like an internet connection error.
More explicitly you fail to download the tarball associated to zlib:
http://www.zlib.net/fossils/zlib-1.2.10.tar.gz

I have checked and I do not have issue on my side so two options
1) the problem is now resolved
2) the issue is that they have put in place some firewall and that you are banned to access that website (either temporarly or permanently)

Cheers,

Olivier
