Have you tried restarting your computer or power cycling your modem/router? To power cycle your modem and/or router, simply unplug the power cord from each of them for 30 seconds, then plug them back in and wait 30 seconds.

Yep, done all that… this problem has persisted from the 13th May.
I have a 35 MB FibreOptic Broadband Connection achieving almost full bandwidth, no problems there.
This does not fill me with confidence for the upcoming OS X Lion Download!!!! lol

Does anyone know where an incoming file download is stored? Maybe thinking of clearing that folder and MacAppStores preference file. Should be okay as purchase info is pulled in via my account details.

known issue of xcode4 MAS purchases, A horrifieng number of the ( german ) reviews say there are issues in never completing the setup or to stall at some percentage.
To resolve : Open the downloaded package by right-cliking "show package contents", then run the installer from there, shall fix the issue for most people.

Sorry guys, can you read my problem again. I cannot complete the "download".

I have the exact same issue. Xcode download hangs at exactly 269.57 MB. When I check /Application Support/App Store it seems like an generic installer .pkg has been downloaded and then the download has stalled.
This has been happening for a few days, over multiple attempts. Tried changing DNS setting as per some other posts but makes no difference.

I solved this issue by downloading through a free VPN, but since those are fishy I changed my Apple ID password as soon as I finished downloading.

Thanks I tried that and it seems to be working. Also thanks for the tip about temporarily changing passwords, I wouldn't have thought of that.

A fix for “An error occurred”
*Note Temp files are located at: ~/Library/Application Support/AppStore/
To fix the “An Error has occurred” perform the following:
1. Sign out of the Mac App Store (Store Menu -> Sign Out)
2. Quit the Mac App Store app
3. Delete anything underneath ~/Library/Application Support/AppStore/
4. Restart the Mac App Store app
5. Sign into the Mac App Store (Store Menu -> Sign In)
After signing back in, you should see your downloads start over.
It also would seem there is a debug menu you can do a safer alternative:
1. Open Terminal
defaults write com.apple.appstore ShowDebugMenu -bool true
3. Relaunch the AppStore
4. Choose the menu item Debug Menu -> Reset App
5. Choose the menu item Debug Menu -> Check for Available Downloads…

I can't even start the download... After a while I discovered that the whole package is available without the downloader app throug this link:
When you log in, you will have a menu on the right side. Go to "Developer Tools" and you will find it (around) the fourth item in the list of tools to download. It says version 4.1, i am not sure if this means 4.1.1 or not.
Just if you want an alternative solution.
EDIT: Oh, this version seems to be the one without the delta update for the iTunes error message.

XCode is a very large file... try useing very high speed internet. Or you can register as an apple developer and download from there...

I don't think my broadband connection is the culprit here. I followed the second suggestion to bjbest - it worked.

I've been downloading Xcode from the app store since the 7th of Sep. As of 30min ago I had downloaded 2.51GB of 3.17GB. Sudnly it stops and the following error screen apeares.
The application could not be downloaded
The server gave an error during download: 403

I tried the 2nd suggestion from bjbest + the google dns suggestion. Bingo. Thanks to all.
