When Mathematica downloads an updated documentation notebook, in some 
cases the notebook may have some large closed example sections 
excised as separately-downloadable "fragments" as a means of keeping 
downloads quick. The fragments are downloaded later, when you open 
the closed groups (if ever).

The error you are seeing is a leftover resulting from you having used 
the 6.0 beta. That particular fragment is not used any longer, and 
therefore is not on the server. If you want to make sure that you see 
no remnants of the 6.0 beta documentation that were automatically 
downloaded in the past, delete the 
$UserBaseDirectory/Paclets/Repository directory and restart Mathematica.
