GitHub.com responds 404 not found for that URL, which may account for
the unexpected EOF:

Whereas that URL seems valid. (At least, the browser offers to
download a file when I click it.)

Let me try downloading some older package as an experiment. To find
one, let me visit https://pkg.racket-lang.org/search. Unfortunately
this morning it's not responding. Although I'm not getting a
connection timeout error yet (well over 60 seconds) the circle is
still spinning in the browser.
