You could try:

    lxc image export images:fedora/25

Which should use more of the same URLs that launch will.

That error isn't coming from us. The image servers behind
images.linuxcontainers.org are two static apache2 servers which are
incapable of returning a 503 error :)

That suggests that your company's proxy server is being unhappy about
downloading the rootfs.tar.xz tarball (but not the metadata one
somehow).
