Pano, from the wiki:Bugtracker page:

Do some research (e.g. using search engines, our forums and existing bug tickets) before creating a ticket.

Pick your favorite :) : #17929, #17930, #17932, #17939, maybe more. And definitely marked as a known-issue in the  "Discuss the 5.2.18 release" in the forums:

We are aware of the current download problems for one of the extension pack links and for the Linux repositories and are working on fixing these. Thank you for your patience.

OK, sorry! It's a duplicate of Ticket #17939 for Fedora 28.

The workaround given though does not work. It has changed the URL and it is not a matter of updating fast enough.
