No available formula with the name "mumps"

mumps is listed on braumeister:

but I can’t seem to brew install mumps:

$ brew install mumps

Method 1:

  1. brew tap brewsci/science
  2. brew install mumps
  3. if that didn’t work, download mumps.rb from here
  4. brew install ./mumps.rb

Method 2

  1. brew tap dpo/openblas
  2. brew install mumps

I’m afraid the above methods I had written while ago might not work anymore. The working installation method provided by Dominique Orban, on MUMPS users mailing list is:

  • brew tap brewsci/num
  • brew install brewsci-mumps

I have been struggling to install mumps on my mac. I just tried the above last option without success. Here is what I get:

brew install brewsci-mumps
==> Downloading

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
Error: Failed to download resource “brewsci-mumps”
Download failed:

I am running under Catalina (Mac OS 10.15.5).
Any help appreciated!
