I think rsync would have done the job but two things (keeping in mind
I'm not an rsync expert):
- You shouldn't specify the destination name, just the directory to
put the iso file
- You don't need the "-a" option, that's for archiving which
substitutes several other options such as recursive file transfer (all
files in a directory tree) and maintaining ownership and other stuff.
- Even with those two problems it seems rsync is assuming a secure
shell (ssh) file transfer when in this case you want it over http,
don't have a clue why.

Your sync command should probably be something like this:
rsync -v

Another option which some people like over wget is curl. I like it
because it has nice CLI status info. The command for it would look
something like this:
curl -L -O

In this case you would want to be in the directory you want it downloaded to.
