Errors from ookla doing yum update

I'm getting the following when I do a `yum udpate` as root and am not sure if this is temporary issue with ookla or if it's something that actually needs to be updated. Not sure what to do???

[[email protected] ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, rhnplugin, universal-hooks
This system is receiving updates from CLN.
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile

Trying other mirror.
To address this issue please refer to the below knowledge base article

If above article doesn't help to resolve this issue please open a ticket with CloudLinux Support.

One of the configured repositories failed (bintray--ookla-rhel),
and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
packages for the previous distribution release still work).

3. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
yum --disablerepo=bintray--ookla-rhel ...

4. Disable the repository permanently, so yum won't use it by default. Yum
will then just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it
again or use --enablerepo for temporary usage:

yum-config-manager --disable bintray--ookla-rhel
subscription-manager repos --disable=bintray--ookla-rhel

5. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice

yum-config-manager --save --setopt=bintray--ookla-rhel.skip_if_unavailable=true

failure: repodata/repomd.xml from bintray--ookla-rhel: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. [Errno 14] HTTPS Error 403 - Forbidden

Hey there! That sounds like an issue specific to that repository. It seems this comes up once in a while with that repo, as I see other mentions of this here:

so it likely will resolve itself.
