download assistant erroring out/failed

Is anybody having this issue?

“An error occurred while download X Application (recommended) Please try again later”

Fill in X for whatever you are trying to download. This has been happening on and off for the past few months.

This is in response to Stienberg’s message (see below)

Due to our major Cubase release, several instruments have received maintenance updates some of which are now reflected in Cubase 11: Padshop 2, Retrologue 2, Groove Agent 5, HALion 6, HALion Sonic 3 and HALion Sonic SE 3. This update resolves several small issues across different areas of the applications.

We strongly recommend installing the according patch to ensure the highest quality experience.

All updates are now available in the Steinberg Download Assistant.

apparently the problem is on my end. rebooting windows machine fixes it.
