Error 403 Indexing in Jamf Admin

Trying to Index in Jamf Admin. Get the following error.

Unable to download Microsoft_Outlook_16.16.19031202_Installer.pkg from Jamf Cloud. Connection failure: "The operation couldn’t be completed. ( error 403.)"

This happens on most, if not all, of the Microsoft Office 2016 packages.

Also noticed in Self Service out Microsoft Updates error out.

You do not need to index the Office installer package you receive from Microsoft.

Indexing only allows you to identify and remove the files deployed by the package, however, many developer packages contain postinstall scripts that move or manipulate files after they're deployed. You cannot effectively remove all of Office using the indexed information.
