Ubuntu 18.04 droplet - can't TLS handshake with


I’m trying to ‘apt update’ and receive the following error. This is new, this has not been an issue for the life of my droplet (well over a year).

Hit:1 bionic InRelease
Hit:2 bionic-updates InRelease
Hit:3 bionic-backports InRelease
Hit:4 bionic InRelease
Ign:5 main InRelease
Hit:6 bionic InRelease
Hit:7 bionic-security InRelease
Err:8 main Release
  Could not handshake: The TLS connection was non-properly terminated. [IP: 443]
Hit:9 bionic InRelease
Hit:10 bionic InRelease
Reading package lists... Done
E: The repository ' main Release' no longer has a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

I did use netstat to discover what appeared to be a Chinese IP address actively ssh’d into my box. I rebooted the box but still can’t connect to - I can connect fine from home so this is localized to my droplet.

Was something potentially changed with my network configuration? Am I being MITM’d?
