Yahoo! has taken down download.finance.yahoo.com server. This affects:

1. Yahoo: broken streaming quotes and company names
2. MarketBeat provider (broken) - it's advised to temporarily switch to "Yahoo analyst ratings" provider for now
3. Community Components: GetExchange, GetFloat
4. Google and Quotemedia providers: missing company name for newly downloaded symbols

Fix is planned.

The Yahoo! provider has been fixed. We've fully restored Streaming data and company names. The extension will be uploaded shortly (ETA this week). Once update is available please use the Extension Manager to apply it and restart WLP/D.

Since the issue isn't critical with regard to the other extensions they will be updated as scheduled (end of November - early December).

To make Yahoo! Streaming data and company names (in static data) work again please update the extension to v2017.12 using the Extension Manager.

I don't know if it's just a Saturday night/Sunday morning server maintenance issue or whether there is a problem with the Google and QuoteMedia static providers, but neither of them will load more than a couple of symbols before returning:
Error: One or more errors occurred.
Provider update complete for [Google Finance / Quote Media]

I am using the 2017.12 versions of both.

I don't know if it matters, but I am trying to load all data for the symbols, rather than updating existing bars (to avoid getting bad split data).

This is something specific to your environment and different from the original issue marked as Resolved. I've just loaded all data from scratch for Dow 30 using both providers successfully.
