We've been informed by the site admin that ftp.mcs.anl.gov is taken
down due to 'cyber incident' - there is no ETA on when it will be

We've been using it the primary host for distributing petsc tarballs

with '--download-package' option are failing.

Obtaining petsc [and some most externalpackages] via git should work.
