Ubuntu: Is the Ubuntu 16.04.1 download from Canonical's Website Corrupt?



Question:

I downloaded Ubuntu 16.04 LTS from Canonical's website, but when I tried to create a bootable USB via Rufus, it told me that ISO Image Extraction failed. I later managed to create a bootable USB via Win32 Disk Manager, but on bootup, my computer said that the file was corrupt. I then downloaded Ubuntu 16.04 LTS from Canonical's website again, but I got the same problem.

What do I do now? I have limited internet data, so should I try downloading another a flavor of Linux? If so which one? Debian looks cool to me. Mint is too Windows like. If there is anyway I can still get Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, then please let me know.


Solution:1

The ISOs on Ubuntu's server are unlikely to be corrupt, but your download may have failed. Re-download the image, and then verify the image against the published MD5 or SHA256 sums on the download page.

You should check the hash after download by running:

sudo md5sum /path/to/ubuntu.iso  

or

sudo sha256sum /path/to/ubuntu.iso  

If you are on Windows download this simple checker: http://www.winmd5.com/
