Either the TDS does not respond to a HEAD request or it is sending back a
wrong Last-Modified or Content-Length http response.

Your message prompted me to look at how RAMADDA handles head requests and
it now (after a long nightmare of updating to a new version of Jetty)
correctly supports the Last-Modified and Content-Length responses.

I'm not sure what TDS repository you are accessing but if its Unidata's
motherlode than once the Unidata folks update the version of ramadda
running you could use the ramadda download services.
