I'm trying to install elm-mode using MELPA. When I try to install it I get an error message:

https://melpa.org/packages/dash-20150829.433.el: Not found

I can install other things, bu not this.

    How are you trying to install it? You should M-x package-install RET elm-mode.

    Could you retry after M-x package-refresh-contents ?

I removed the old MELPA repository from my .emacs file and added this:

(add-to-list 'package-archives
         '("melpa-stable" . "https://stable.melpa.org/packages/") t)

Restarted Emacs and it started to work well.
