It's ok to ignore it and let it keep trying.

It's a known issue that SpamAssassin mirror sites may be unavailable temporarily sometime, but it will be back later.

It does not sound to be temporarily unavailable due to receiving on a daily basis. I am a little worry about the functionality of spamassassin. I dont know why spamassassin needs this website and whether there is  alternatives when it is not accessible?

To balance the bandwidth for downloading its (updated) rule files, a.k.a. mirror sites.
