Bug#927462: megadown: Does not download anything

jim_p
Package: megadown
Version: 0~20180705+git83c53dd-1
Severity: grave
Tags: upstream
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

When trying to download a file from mega, which is the sole reason this script
exists, megadown fails like so

$ megadown
'https://mega.nz/#!3QsG0IDJ!wnEhMRAj1UsXvH3BmWKfr5Z4wqMD2c5ru4iWgFzJmO0'
       Reading link metadata...
        MEGA bad link

I reported the issue to the project's github page, because it happened with
other mega links as well, and its dev issued a patch that restores the intended
functionality, here

https://github.com/tonikelope/megadown/commit/734e46fec67a2798bfbb5e21a75f04b90afafd65

So please update the package on the repo, which by the way is numerous minor
versions behind.
