    I had to reinstall my my system software recently on my Mac Pro, i am running Sierra.
    Now Fetch says “An FTP connection to my site could not be opened because the FTP server has shut down.
    Try again, or contact the server administrator to verify that the server is running.
    Server responded: “Sorry cleartext sessions and weak and weak ciphers are not accepted on this server."

    It sounds like the server now requires FTP with TLS/SSL. Have you tried connecting with the "Connect using" menu set to FTP with TLS/SSL?
