Have you read the instructions inside the extension?
NOTE: Some servers (for example, github.com) don't support remote uploads.
I've tried to let the script to pull files from GitHub, but it is impossible with sockets.
I think that GitHub is blocking automatic requests so you need to download zip files from GitHub elsewhere (on local PC or on a remote server that doesn't block sockets) to be able to upload and install an extension.
I haven't tested zips from phpbb.com, but I think that it should be possible to upload extensions from this site by using a direct link.
