quotes.csv ==> Sorry, Unable to process request at this time -- error 999

I'm getting an error message when I use this link:

 

    https://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv

 

This is a temporary technical problem or the service has been permanently discontinued?

 

I hope it will be the first option.... :-) 

Thank you in advance

I am receiving the same error message and wondered if this is a temprorary thing, or if the routing address has been adjusted.  Thanks!

Ditto!  Same problem occurring from all PCs in two separate networks, thus an apparent problem with the Yahoo! Finance " export" function.  I've been using that " export" function flawlessly for years and this is the first time that it has failed and given the error message: "Sorry, Unable to process request at this time -- error 999".

Please fix asap.  Thank you in advance.

Congratulations. That is the most dishonest service discontinuation announcement that I have ever heard. Captain Louis Renault would be proud. ("I'm shocked! Shocked! to find that gambling is going on here!")
