APT repository failing

Elasticsearch repository in a Ubuntu focal 20.04 throws the following error while attempting to update apt:

E: Failed to fetch https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/7.x/apt/dists/stable/main/binary-amd64/Packages.bz2  File has unexpected size (78886 != 78795). Mirror sync in progress? [IP: 443]

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Is the repository down? any possible workarounds for this?

Hello! Thanks for reaching out & apologies for the inconvenience. Our team's currently investigating (id: es#4929) & should have an update soon.

Elastic Infra's still investigating. If you don't mind, let's consolidate this to this parent Discuss post for updates.
