Failed to connect to api.ipify.org at port 443: [Errno 8] nodename nor - DNSCRYPT

I am trying to to push launch my staging server on a blank Ubuntu digitalocean droplet following the guide. And I get the following error.

I found some thing about it at the github https://github.com/roots/trellis/issues/949 so I went on the Ubuntu server and found the DNSCrypt package was installed and removed it, reset the server and still the same error. I don’t even understand if it means my local machine or the server, I don’t have it on either now that I can find running anywhere. It something I would install on my own. Also if this is part of setting up a base Droplet should the droplet guide be updated?

I read more about this, it is trying to run from my local machine and connect to http://api.ipify.org which seems down or is not a url anymore when their website says to use http://api6.ipify.org ?

If anyone read all this, api.ipify.org is straight up blocked by the university campus network I am on. Works on my phone.
