Can't download the M2NIST dataset


When running the cell for downloading the M2NIST dataset, the following error appears:

Resolving (…,,, …
Connecting to (||:443… connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response… 404 Not Found
2023-01-10 15:03:07 ERROR 404: Not Found.

The link refers to a page with the following content:

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

< Error >

</ Error>

It seems that this M2NIST dataset is not available anymore (at that location).
Can this data be made available again, or can import it in some other way?

Thanks and regards,
