current petsc release [3.17]  has [in config/BuildSystem/config/packages/hypre.py]:

    self.download        = ['git://https://github.com/hypre-space/hypre','https://github.com/hypre-space/hypre/archive/'+self.gitcommit+'.tar.gz']

What version of PETSc are you attempting to install?

One can always use --download-hypre=TarBallURL - or --download-hypre=git://GitURL - but you would need to figure out the compatible
version of hypre to use [with the corresponding PETSc version]

However its best to install/use the latest PETSc release.
