Issues installing Eclipse Force.com IDE plugin

I'm following this tutorial on installing the Force.com IDE in Eclipse 4.2:
https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Force.com_IDE_Installation

However, I enter the update location, Eclipse doesn't find anything at that URL:
User-added image

The update location URL from the tutorial:
http://media.developerforce.com/force-ide/eclipse42

When I open the update location in Chrome, this is what I get:
User-added image

It looks like something is wrong with the repository at that URL.
Is anyone else having issues with this?

I reinstalled Eclipse and the plugin on Wednesday morning, so that tutorial is not completely out of date.

I agree that it looks like there is an issue with the respository that needs to be reported to Salesforce.

As an alternative you can download the Summer '14 release of the plguin directly from the github repository (https://github.com/forcedotcom/idecore/releases/tag/v31.0.0.201406301722).

All right, I managed to install the plugin from the git repository. Thanks for the help!

While the update site is down, we can use these tutorials to install the plugin from the git repository instead:
https://github.com/forcedotcom/idecore/wiki/Getting-Started

I'm new to SalesForce, so I'm not sure where to report such issues.
Do you know a page or email address where I can submit an issue? I couldn't find anything about this.
