For example, the USA site's download page: https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/scanners/photo-scanner/canoscan-li...
Try going to any Windows download of either the the main software package (CanoScan LiDE 220 Full Driver & Software Package (Windows 10/10 x64/8.1/8.1 x64/8/8 x64/7/7 x64/Vista/Vista64/XP) released on 07/22/15) or the updated 1.03 driver. Both links go to 404.
For example, the link to the main package leads me to this broken link: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/1/0100006031/01/win-lide220-1_0-ucd.exe
Have tried Canon's Canada, UK, Thailand, Vietnam, South African sites. All direct you to the same links and therefore don't work.
Best guess: CDN or similar isn't working as expected.
I have a shiny, wrapped CD of software right here next to me... but since it's 2019, no optical drive to read it.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The links for the CanoScan LiDE 220 are working. Please try again. If the issue persists, please try using a different web browser.

Humm.. have a suspicion PiHole is blocking this.
Chrome and Firefox had the same results but when I tested with my phone connected to LTE it did work.
I disabled PiHole for 30 seconds and the links did work, although my work's filtering tool also warned me that I was about to download something (expected).
Ok - false alarm. To anyone reading this, disable pihole.
