      Try going to your CF directory and find version and right-click > properties > check read-only. If that doesn't work, run patcher_cf as administrator.

        Open up your version.ini file in your crossfire folder and paste what it says here since I'm pretty sure it's corrupt.

        I am not replaceable, and I mean that in the most humble way possible.

                  simple and easy and hope it works for you:
                  1.Open Patcher and let it verify the Rez files...
                  2.When the Verify finishes it will start downloading.
                  3.Notice which file is the one you get error at and then the patcher will close.
                  4.Open the Patcher again and let the same process go on and when it comes to the file you get error at Just close the patcher as fast as possible.
                  if you get the error pop up before you close the patcher then you will have to open it again and try more faster.
                  hope this works for you guys,it truly worked for me!
                  You can try this one i managed to find a solution hope it works for you.

                      Try to turn off any protection software such as Antivirus or Windows Defender or Firewall.

                                Im sorry im probably supper late to post this.. I hope You alrdy solved ur issue however for future reference.. Il just leave this method here.. It works for me 100% of the time when ever I encounter "failed to download patch file"

                                ..When ever I get the failed to download the patch file..what I do is..
                                Steps:
                                1. Go in c.f folder right click on version.ini open properties uncheck "read only" apply..ok. Next
                                2. step open version.ini normally then there u'll find 'latest version' and the version number written. rn its 2080 i guess.. Im not sure abt the first 2 digits, anyway the only change u have to do is.. On the last 2 numbers dnt change the first 2 numbers on latest version line. If its '79' make it '80' or if its '80' make it '81' im sorry i forgt wts the current version number and iam away from pc..
                                U get that error cuz version number is wrong in ur version.ini file and it wnt update on its own..so this is the manual method.
                                3. Anyway after writing the next number on the Place of last two digits close it.. Thn right click on version.ini. and open Properties check on 'read only' box.. Apply and close..double click on patcher and let it download the current patch.
                                SIDE NOTE: U can even Skip the last "read only" check box step. It will only roll back the number to its original (i.e the current version number) if u have written the wrong number on latest version . example : latest version :2080 and u made it latest version :2085 " this will roll back to its original version 2080 since version 2085 does not exist. this is only when you dnt check on "read only" after making chnges. However if you do check on "read only" box and wrote a wrong number there it will not roll back to its original number it will give u 'failed to download the patch file" but dw..all u hv to do is follow the steps above and write the current version number and start the patch. The patcher will run if ur latest version is correct and it will download the latest version if it already did not automatically.
                                Im soo sorry if this is confusing.. Im not on pc rn u.u so try to understand it ._. G.L
