Failing to download data from 'imdb_reviews/subwords8k' dataset //urgent help needed

Hello there
I am working on Google colab. And working to download data from ‘imdb_reviews/subwords8k’ dataset. I have the check the tensorFlow version for this session, 2.8.2. I was able to load data for last couple of days but suddenly colad shows the following error behavior. And I cannot process the data. please…have a look…

the code:

import tensorflow_datasets as tfds
words, infos = tfds.load("imdb_reviews/subwords8k", with_info=True, as_supervised=True)
tokenizer = infos.features['text'].encoder

The Warning:

WARNING:absl:TFDS datasets with text encoding are deprecated and will be removed in a future version. Instead, you should use the plain text version and tokenize the text using `tensorflow_text` (See:
Downloading and preparing dataset imdb_reviews/subwords8k/1.0.0 (download: 80.23 MiB, generated: Unknown size, total: 80.23 MiB) to /root/tensorflow_datasets/imdb_reviews/subwords8k/1.0.0...

The snapshot of the Error:

TimeoutError                              Traceback (most recent call last)

TimeoutError: [Errno 110] Connection timed out

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

NewConnectionError                        Traceback (most recent call last)

Please suggests some ideas to resolve the error

We’re seeing this too. It might be a temporary outage.
