No. Unfortunately Kodi is not always able to download remote artwork. The artwork may have been removed (in which case you need a new remote url), or the remote web site hosting the artwork may not allow mass scraping, so keep trying and it might work a bit later.

Rate limiting, ideally in Kodi as it's Kodi that performs the actual download from the remote site, or in the texturecache.py script might help - you could try downloading cast artwork using only a single download thread in texturecache.py with @Download.threads=1 (edit: that's download with a lowercase d - thank forum) and see if that helps. Or try @singlethread.urls=ia.media-imdb.com which limits the sequential download to the specified (comma-delimited) domains.

Not sure if Universal Movie Scraper actually downloads the artwork - it may just associate the movie with the actor url, then the artwork is downloaded the first time you view that actor thumbnail in the GUI (at a time when the remote site is allowing the reduced number of requests from Kodi).
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
