Cannot start simulator with credentials provided by Parrot today

I have obtained the credentials provided by Parrot and I can start the simulation environment successfully before, however, something wrong with my environment today, hope someone can help.
The question is as followed:

When i execute this command sphinx "/opt/parrot-sphinx/usr/share/sphinx/drones/anafi_ai.drone"::firmware="ftp://my_user:my_passwd@ftp2.parrot.biz/versions/anafi2/pc/%23latest/images/anafi2-pc.ext2.zip" on one terminal, and execute another command parrot-ue4-empty on another terminal.

The outputs are here:

It seems like that I cannot get the anafi2-pc.ext2.zip on the right path or URL, is there something wrong with the ftp server or with my login account? (My registered account can login the ftp server successfully, but I cannot find any files there)

Hi

We are sorry but the FTP server is currently down. We are currently working to bring it back up. In parallel, we are also speeding things up for an alternative distribution solution we were initially planning for September.

I’ll keep you informed as soon as I have more info.

Regards
Nicolas

Thanks a lot, hope to see the new alternative distribution soon.

You should now be able to install sphinx from our new public apt repo :

echo "deb http://debian.parrot.com/ $(lsb_release -cs) main generic" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.parrot.com.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install parrot-sphinx

You may also remove the previous ftp2.parrot.biz repo from your source.list
