While only the experts can help you out, I would suggest to use
sha1sum or sha224sum instead of md5sum when trying to check signatures
of the image you downloaded.
The second thing, although not exactly relevant to your situation is,
i586 support was taken out about a year ago -
But as can be seen this is for stretch and beyond. With jessie you
shouldn't have problems.
https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/linux shows that the release you are
using should not effect you.
