first of all, i wonder why you would install such an old version of dnn. 3 major new versions have been released since 4.4.1. One of the features of newer versions is that not all modules are installed by default, which will make your site considerably faster during restart of the site.

From the error you posted here, it is a little hard to decide where the error is. There are a few options:

* the timeout of your website kicked in, this is an iis setting
* for some reason an error occured during installation of the repository module

Forced accept.
