The Infra team has blocked the debian repo because it was causing in excess of 600,000 requests/day.

INFRA-8585 has been updated.

TL;DR The repository should be working (it is working for me), so keep us
in the loop if you continue to have problems.

Long term we need to find an alternative to hosting on www, but for the
meantime, INFRA is not supposed to be blocking access.
