    Not sure this is the first time Unity download use google storage, but it's the first time in recent months that I am not able to download a Unity release (all recent 2018.2/2018.3.0b releases were downloaded successfully, so hopefully is yet another temporal CDN issue...)

    Screenshots are from my proxy client, where I force Unity Hub to go through a local proxy so that I can examine which request has failed.

    Hello,
    sorry to hear you had issues downloading unity.
    If you have issues with the DNS storage.googleapis.com, may I suggest that you download Unity without the Documentation first, then?
    It is the only one that uses that DNS. If you really want the offline documentation, you can try adding the component to your installation afterwards, by clicking on the "..." menu beside the desired Unity version.

    Alright I tested it today and your suggestion worked. Indeed only the documentation download connects to storage.googleapis.com, and by proxying it separately I am able to make this work.

    Leaving some screenshots for future readers
