    I have a playlist with 600 songs. I tried to make it available offline. It started downloading roughly 600 songs, then decided it was going to skip about 500 of them for no apparent reason, and only downloaded 100. Tried again, this time it started to download all 600 again (what happened to the 100 I let download before) and after a couple minutes, dropped down to 50. What gives?

    Got the same problem. There is no way to download ALL music titles in Apple Music on your device so I put them in a playlist and started downloading them (2300 titles). At first try it gave me an error after a while like 'Title XY can't be downloaded at the moment' (my iPhone became really hot and slow) and at second try it just skipped many tracks and so they were not downloaded. I called Apple Support today and the only possible fix is to split the playlists in smaller ones (I tried using 200 tracks per playlists) and that worked for me. I hope this can solve your problem until Apple will fix it and gives us the chance to download all the tracks together :)

    I got all my music downloaded yesterday by splitting them up. Today, I wake up to find that my iPhone deleted all of my offline music. I downloaded music again, finally got it all on my phone. Made a single change to a playlist in iTunes, and my iPhone deleted it AGAIN.

    If Apple Music is going to delete offline music, it's useless to me. I need to have my music available offline. This is ridiculous.

    Well, I totally agree. Apple Music seems to be very buggy and useless. Unfortunately I have just canceled my Spotify subscription. I really should reactivate it.
