Something must have changed on VSTS. I don't think this repo has seen any commits since this error occured. Error message shown below. I tried leaving the source input box blank and with $(Build.SourcesDirectory). I'll try to look into it when I get a chance.

It is not VSTS: something changed in GitHub Hugo site. It breaks trying to list the executable in order to download it.
Now I see that I can get the right URL on the first request.
