When trying to manually download a package from the package website

1. Navigate to "https://archlinux.org/packages/core/any/mkinitcpio/"
2. click on the link "Download From Mirror"
3. Browser goes to "https://archlinux.org/packages/core/any/mkinitcpio/download"
4. Browser is redirected to "https://mirror.pseudoform.org/core/os/x86_64/mkinitcpio-31-2-any.pkg.tar.zst"

Both my vivaldi browser and firefox will refuse to connect to the server and instead show a certificate error.
Vivaldi will show "NET::ERR_CERT_REVOKED", and firefox will show "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER".
I checked this bug tracker and the forums and could not find anything new. Connected to the irc channels and someone else confirmed they were affected by this.

The certificate seems to have been revoked.

Test the url at step 4. with these two website :

OCSP Status - revoked

Priority is medium. The web download will not work for any packages, but my pacman is not affected as I don't use this mirror.
This task depends upon

I believe the website selects a random mirror from your region when you download a file. Anyhow, the certificate appears to have been renewed and I can open the URL just fine in my browser now.
