I am trying to add the following WFS layer in QGIS 2.18.25:

I use the following steps:

Layer -> add layer -> wfs layer
Enter url of service above.
Click Connect

Popup with message: unexpected end of file.

Expected result:
Loaded map.

This was a working WFS. Issue only start to happen yesterday (11/11/2018)/
I can add this WFS in ArcGIS Online and it works fine.

Can you confirm that this is a bug in QGIS?

QGIS version 2.18.25
Windows 10

Usually that error mean a server configuration problem.

Anyway on 2.18.25 works fine here.

The WFS URL is working.

Benchmark QGIS:
QGIS 2.18.25 - OK
QGIS 3.2.0 - OK
QGIS 3.4.1 - OK

Please test with QGIS 3.4 - QGIS 2.18 reached it's end of life.

Was likely a transient server error. Works fine with master / 3.5
