That's correct, the update site [1] is created using the Apache
mirrors.cgi script and chooses a random/nearby mirror that is used for
downloading the real artifacts. This is a requirement from Apache infra
in order to distribute the load.

Possible solutions:
- Host your own site.xml in your internal network that points to an
allowed mirror [2]
- Mirror an Apache mirror directly, choose one from [2]. However the
site.xml is currently not distributed to the mirrors. But I think that
is something we can solve, please create a Jira if we should try that.

Kind Regards,
