nixos/geoip-updater: remove #55867
Motivation for this change
2019-01-01 MaxMind stopped distributing GeoIP v1 databases.
Fixing seems a bad option, because a fixed service would provide only GeoIP v2 and thus won't be a replacement for what the service was before and it would require all numerous services which use GeoIP database to update to newer MaxMind library (which is not backward compatible)
So, it would be better if the next service have a different name, for example
FYI even the GeoIPv2 databases will be unavailable starting 2020-01-01: https://blog.maxmind.com/2019/12/18/significant-changes-to-accessing-and-using-geolite2-databases/ You'll be able to get them for free but registration will be needed.
