First: I created and have uploaded successfully my MAC GEDCOM from FTM2017 into Ancestry.com using my Ancestry userid/pwsd via FireFox internet.
Second: stayed into Ancestry . Swapped back over to my Mac app "FTM2017", using Ancestory icon, log into Ancestry.com successfully. Then, using the FTM2017 app and select "download from Ancestry..." this is the error message pop-up screen:
