check your web browser proxy settigs and the windows proxy settings and disable any proxy that is entered there if you are sure you would normally not use any proxy.

A proxy is redirecting the data to some other IP to "normall" ease the loading of websites (from a cache e.g.) but it also could be that some malware has installed a proxy to reroute the internet traffic to other sites so they are able to spy you!
So check your system for any proxy enabled and disable it.
Thank you for your answer
I checked my proxy settings again - I'm not using one. It's empty.

already as it often is the cause of that problem!
Like I said above, I already tried setting my Java to Ipv4 (which is .13), didn't work.
We've really been at it for over a week now, me + Sysadmin Husband. We're really at our ends.

I also tried both the tracerts, both work fine.

Anything else I could try?

Edit: Kinda doubt it's my ISP, every website and everything else works besides minion. If it was my ISP, half of Germany would be blocked since it's Vodafone. I'll let my husband check his minion later today, we're on the same connection, just to be sure.

Edit 2: 2nd PC in the same room has no trouble starting Minion and updating everything, so it's def. nothing with my connection / ISP. Oh my. I'll start labelling my whole system as "esoteric".
