A couple things: This article is two years old, so take its predictions with a grain of salt. In the two years that have elapsed, the predicted advances have not materialized, and there is little indication they will soon. The core of those arguments was Joux's 2013 result on the discrete logarithm problem in finite fields of small characteristic. Those ...
I just want to highlight: The new advancement need to be realized and validated. ECC and DH are quite similar although ECC discrete logarithm problem is harder. In other words, whatever effects the security of DH might not effect ECC with the same magnitude.
