The short reply size made me think to try a packet capture, and it turned out to be a message from the site’s “transparent” HTTP proxy, telling me that content’s blocked.

Rather than fight with site IT over the block list, I have a new question: is there any plan for getting HTTPS-only updates in CentOS?  Changing all “http” to “https” in my repo conf files just made the update stall, so I assume there are mirrors that are still HTTP-only.
