ERROR messages like are from when the HTTP server doesn't return a
response, or returns a mangled response. I usually only see these on
embedded devices or over a slow link, though some web servers fail to
return a response on some URIs.
I normally advise trying these by hand (e.g. through nc or through nikto
-Single) to see exactly what the web server is doing.
