When trying to download weather files (, I am getting the following error:

The website that you're trying to reach is having technical difficulties and is currently unavailable. We are aware of the issue and are working hard to fix it. Thank you for your patience.

This is coming up for every weather file I try to download.

How can I access these files?

The EnergyPlus weather website seems to be working fine now, I just downloaded weather files from there a minute ago. The correct URL doesn't have the "-search" that you included at the end, maybe that's the issue.

If the EnergyPlus weather site is down for maintenance or you can't access it again in the future for some other reason, another resource for free weather files is Climate.OneBuilding.Org. They actually have more locations and more recent weather data than the EnergyPlus weather website does.
