I think there is some problem with linux OS now leave that process of installing extensions through magento connect

Lets do this in manual way.

Step 1 :search for required extension/Theme and get the extension key and copy it.

Step 2:Now paste it in here to download

Step 3:Copy the folders and paste them into your Magento root folder but dont forget to merge them.

your theme/extension is now ready to use.

About 503 Error

Goto your magento root folder there you can see maintainance.flag file delete it next time if you install using magento uncheck put store in maintenance see below image.

Hope this helps.

  • Can you expand on 'there is some problem with linux OS'. I haven't come across this (but I very rarely use connect). Commented Nov 15, 2014 at 7:32
  • as the one who questioned already put some screenshot it is being strucked at that process but the same process if done in Windows it is working perfectly.
