I am seeing the same thing. It looks like the Comodo website is offline again. This happened a few years back for a few days. At the time there was concern that this free rule set was being removed due to a change of ownership. It resolved itself at that time in a few days. I hope this will be the case this time.

Hey there! Currently there is an issue with the ModSecurity provider's update servers that is outside of cPanel's control. We're tracking this on our end and I'll be sure to post a message here as soon as we receive an update.
