Some FAQ's can be found on the moneymvps.org website:

As reported on CNet earlier, Microsoft have confirmed it on their website.
All of the pages now have an additional tag saying: Important notice: Microsoft Money Plus will not be available for purchase after June 30, 2009. Click here for additional information. Purchases made by June 30, 2009, once activated, will provide Microsoft Money Plus with online services until Jan. 30, 2011. Be sure to activate your product as soon as possible after purchase to receive maximum benefit of online services.
The software maker has been notifying financial institutions and plans to announce the move to customers over the next 24 hours via a posting on its Web site and a notification in the software. Although Microsoft will stop selling the product at the end of June, it plans to support it through January 2011.

Microsoft are aware of the problem. A recent communication to someone who had seen the problem and contacted support was:
...We have already determined that this is a consistent issue with the servers in the MoneyCentral website that needs to be worked on, I will pass this situation
to higher levels of support to look for a resolution...
So, rest assured it is known about
Update 25 May: got back from a few days away, and have a few messages from users saying it is fixed.

I received an email around 11pm BST (22:00 GMT) last night informing me. I've also heard from a couple of people confirming this is the case.
If you've been stuck at version 730, you should now try and restart Money and let the download occur. Once done, you may wish to consider making a CD as detailed in FAQ Article 630, BUT make sure you test it if you do!!!.
Thanks for all the comments and questions during the outage. It made the page reporting the problem one of my busiest ever.

Credit is to Jean-Paul in the French money newsgroup who came up with the solution. I've had feedback that it works on all language versions of Money 2005.
It is probably not legal to share the files that are required from a patched version. You may need to wait until Microsoft sorts out the problem with downloading before performing these instructions.

Microsoft is working on the problem. In the meantime you'll probably not be able to open your Money file if you've just done a clean install and need to use an existing file.
As far as I know, it is affecting all regions.
Update: 14 May - I'm hearing that the fix should be ready later in the week, however this is not guaranteed.
16 May: Hearing this morning that things seem to be working again

I'd be interested to hear if anyone has tested other versions of Money, and whether they have had success or failure with them.
As far as I see, Windows 7 operates in the same way as Vista does with Microsoft Money. If this is the case, then all versions of Money should be okay.
PS. Thanks for all the well wishers regarding my job situation. I'm pleased to say that I start a new one on Monday 2nd February :-)

Seems to just hang and then throw an error. However, people are on the case and hopefully normal service will be resumed shortly.
When it comes back, I hope it'll be faster, as I've taken the time to put on a few code updates. If it keeps erroring beyond 10pm GMT (2pm PST) then it'll probably be the morning by the time I fix it.

As Money 2009 was never released, we're moving to the next iteration of the software. The naming may not be Money 2010, given that Money 2008 was actually Money Plus. They may, if a release happens, decide to go back to year number, maybe not. I've no idea on how Microsoft decide to name ay product so Money Plus+, Money 18 etc. could all be valid.
One thing that will happen this year is that the 2 year online services feature of some of the Money Plus early adopters will expire, and without either a new product to move to, or an extension to this feature, people using this version of Money will start to lose functionality. The expiration will start around the start of August for those who downloaded a copy, and towards the end of August for those who bought a product from a retail store when it first came out (Note: if you bought Money Plus later than this, your expiry will be later - 2 years after the first activation).
Whether 2010 comes out is, at this stage, a mystery - this posting is not an indication of that. However the expiration of Money Plus is not a mystery - I keenly wait for the news to come out, in its usual manner.

I've been a bit quiet over the last few months - I no longer have a job and am now seeking out new opportunities. I've seen it coming, but I've tried to focus on that a bit more than Microsoft Money. I'll continue looking until I find something, but as I now am stuck at home, I'll have some more time to devote to the site (I can't search for jobs all day!)
Over the next few weeks, whilst away from work (I hope to be employed again soon), I've got some plans to work on updates to the US product pages on my website http://moneymvps.org/ - these are occasionally timing out due to problems connecting to Amazon Web Services. I've also had a couple of questions which I'm planning on turning into short articles (I put one on today - When to use subcategories).
I hope 2009 brings great things to you all - health, happiness and your wishes.
