Is the julia package registry down today?

Today I’m unable to do anything with the package manager; it cannot download anything from the registry,

(@v1.9) pkg> up
    Updating registry at `C:\Users\rvq\.julia\registries\General.toml`
┌ Error: Some registries failed to update:

The load balancer for US-East region was apparently having some trouble, and had to be restarted around 3 hours ago. The problem should be gone now.

There’s an issue being tracked here to avoid/minimise problems like this in the future.
