I am trying to download some data from the UniProtKB website. I have a Ubuntu 16.04.2 VM hosted on Azure.
The main repository is hosted here. I want to download one of the .gz files, but when I use wget (wget "pathtofile") I have the following error:
wget: unable to resolve host address ‘ftp.uniprot.org’
I have tried the same thing with a clone of the UniProt DB that is here, and it works fine for download. Is this an issue with UniProt? The same issue happens with ftp and scp.
