Hmmm - I suspect that you are running jigdo-lite on a filesystem which has
problems with the very long filename. Try downloading the file manually and
putting it into the tmp directory under a different name (any name will do,
jigdo-file doesn't look at the filename), then restart jigdo-lite.

I have just checked and it seems that the copy of the .deb on
us.cdimage.debian.org is not corrupted; its checksum matches that from the
.jigdo file. This really looks like a problem at your end!

Yes, indeed, you *should* be asking yourself this question! Why are you
downloading CD 7 at all, when Debian's recommendation (and you have read
the CD FAQ, haven't you? ;-) is only to download the first two or three

Note that if you can't get the jigdo-lite run to complete successfully, it
is possible to burn the incomplete .iso.tmp file on CD-R. In that case, the
resulting CD will work, except that the .deb in question will be filled
with zero bytes on the CD.
All the best,
