Exactly what errors are you seeing from curl? Were you trying to run `selfupdate` today? Our rsync, distfiles, and packages servers are currently unresponsive.

As I suspect your issues are due to our downtime, reinstalling would be a waste of your time. Just wait until our servers are back up. Nothing bad is going to happen if you can't run `selfupdate` for a few hours.
