    Can't download ubuntu server image

    I am on the way to get the ubuntu image, especially for the server. Our school does not allow to use torrent, so I tried to get the image through webpage. I got the image for desktop, but can't get the one for server.
    Although I tried to get one from mirror sites. still stuck on 79% and shut down. (IE / Chrome both stuck)


    Do we have download issues?


    or just my network issue? thanks!

    Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums

    It might be a temporary error, and downloading might work again next time you try unless there is something wrong at your end of the connection. Remember to check that the download was good with md5sum according to the following link

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes

    If the error persists, you can try another version of Ubuntu Server. I'd recommend version 12.04 LTS (long time support until April 2017) or the newest version 13.10 with support only until July 2014, when you need to upgrade to the next version 14.04 LTS.

    Or you can try with the Ubuntu mini.iso 12.04 LTS and use that to install Ubuntu Server.

    Have you solved your issue? We are still waiting for your feedback. I used IE 10 and I haved used the lastest version of Ubuntu Server and it still did not work. And I have tried to cleared the cookies but it still did not work.

    Did you try from here? http://releases.ubuntu.com/
    After selecting a distribution scroll down the page for various download options.
    If torrents are not allowed then you could try the jigdo option.
