Cannot run or install Acrobat Reader any more

I had Acrobat Reader running last year without problems, but this year, it kept freezing, so I tried to reinstall, but I cannot get it to run. It always fails while downloading files from web.archive, and I found that the links are indeed broken. I found two related threads and tried all suggestions there, but to no avail. Is there anything else I can do to troubleshoot? I tried purging, removing acrordrdc data folder and re-installing from edge, but I always run into the same problem.
