I have a similar error with db_tests with a BackTrack,
i.e. BT5R1-GNOME-VM-32, which I have reproduced below:
root at bt:/pentest/web/nikto# ./nikto.pl -update
+ Retrieving 'db_tests'
+ ERROR: Unable to get CIRT.net/nikto/UPDATES/2.1.4/db_tests
I can't retrieve "db_tests" with a web browser (Chrome) or wget as confirmed
by the 200 OK HTTP Status Code quoted below:
root at bt:/pentest/web/nikto# wget

This error is occurring now (i.e. 6PM Australian Eastern Standard Time) so
ignore the timestamp in the example above i.e. *02:52:01.*
