I'm seeing this in the US as well. It's in documentation link in the banner across the top: DocumentationBrowse SoftwareNewsDownload.

Note the Download link is broken as well, and the Browse Software link works, but only because of a redirection (the URL is old).

I think it's an issue with our redirects (* should redirect to*). I'm working on it with our hosting people.

I've updated the links across the top of to use the new resource URLs and not rely on the redirects from the old locations.

As @William said, We're also working to restore the redirects for better backwards compatibility.

Has this been completely resolved? I come across quite some links to fi that 404 for me currently.

And leads to this page instead of redirecting. Not sure whether that was always the case, but it's confused students to no end here.

I don't know the whole picture of what's going on but for redirection issue I opened a ticket for better visibility of the status.
