To bring to your attention it appears that the mirror - ftp.acc.umu.se - is on Cloudflare's Malware list

When trying to download a new skin from the UK I was getting lots of failed dependencies errors earlier today.

Working through the DNS errors upstream it seems Cloudflare unfiltered DNS resolver at 1.1.1.1 works ok but their Malware filtered DNS resolver at 1.1.1.2 returns 0.0.0.0 which I assume indicates the server is on their malware list.

Code:

dig ftp.acc.umu.se @1.1.1.1

I've asked for it to be recategorized. I don't know if this will happen and it's a shame I even have to do this. I guess it shows how much you can trust such blocklists. In any case, ftp.acc.umu.se is a reliable and renowned university mirror; I don't see a reason for us to drop it.
