I'm currently using a script which uses the CDN of NACIS. But for some reason their CDN is down and I'm getting the following error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "scripts/", line 294, in <module>
  File "scripts/", line 230, in main
    download = s.get(source["url"], headers=headers)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/requests/", line 533, in get
    return self.request('GET', url, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/requests/", line 520, in request
    resp = self.send(prep, **send_kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/requests/", line 630, in send
    r = adapter.send(request, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/requests/", line 508, in send
    raise ConnectionError(e, request=request)
requests.exceptions.ConnectionError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /naturalearth/110m/cultural/ (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object at 0x7f501cfe44e0>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 110] Connection timed out',))

Does anyone have any idea why their CDN is down and when I could expect it to be available again?

Yes - there has been chat on their github about it. I'm sure they'll fix it.

@SomeoneElse, would you have a link to the conversation, please?

1 is where I saw it.

There have been issues in this area previously with the redirection between the main natural earth site and the CDN. See the links from .
