Just tested and it works fine. 

Make sure that you switch to passive ftp mode in case a firewall is
between you and the ftp.g10code.com.  Web browser as well as lftp
default to passive mode, for plain old ftp clients you need to enter
"passive" and for wget you should check that you have a line

  passive_ftp = on

in /etc/wgetrc.  It is in general considered a good idea to alway use
passive mode FTP.  This puts the burden on the server and server
admins know how to cope with the FW rules then.  Frankly I don't
understand why wget still default to active mode out of the box
(Debian install it with passive mdoe enabled).

No, there is no other location to retrieve this file.  Note, that
GPGol is still considered alpha state.
