We are unable to install the SQL Server 2016 developer version in the machine which we are downloading from here https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=799009 and getting the error while installing "**The SQL installer file "SQLRules_x64_ENU.exe" was not found on the server. Please try again later**" Looks like it is an issue with exe itself. Can some one help us on this?

We have the same issue. It started suddenly on 11/9/2021.
Can someone respond on this on priority? Thanks.

@v-ramepa, it looks like the issue is still there. Did you find any workaround?

Issue has been resolved by SQL team. Thanks
