This is very likely caused by the incorrect DEFAULT_VERSION.

Yes, that was a bad coordination on my side. Jason released it and it
did not update the online version - the script that does the release
requires my ssh key to access to the server.

I will fix this right now

Jason, can you send me a ssh key so we avoid the problem next time ?

Thx and sorry
