Is your internet stable when you are attempting the download. Have you tried at a different times of the day/night?

waiting for night time to try again

I'm not sure that I understand.
According to the terminal output you posted, the update ran successfully.
Otherwise, it points out to rename the file ~/.cache/winetricks/directx9/directx_Jun20210_redist.exe in order to autoreplace it. You could rename it to directx_Jun20210_redist-bkp.exe
