File corrupt during Jessie installation - I have ot do something tonight, even use another distro. :-((
My husband's computer died today. We rushed out and got another, cheap,
temporary one while his main one is being repaired. I said that I could get
it up and running quickly. Famous last words.
I downloaded the most recent Jessie Net-install + firmware, didn't checksum it
because of the enormous problems I have getting the checksums (could we not
please, please just have a hyperlink? I am not the only partially sighted
person in the world). Yes, risk. But this is temporary, and no-one has been
yowling about corrupt files on the Debian website.
I started the installation, and just after partitioning and the beginning of
files downloading got the following message:
Warning: file:///cdrom/pool/main/g/gnupg/gnupg_1.4.18-7_amd64.deb was corrupt
So I aborted the installation and went back to my 8.02 disk which I have used
It did exactly the same. Got past partitioning (rather too fast???) and
started to install the software, then stopped with the same warning.
I then tried 8.0.0. Double checked the md5sum. The firmware was too old.
So I broke open a new USB external optical drive, used the 8.0.2 and EFI
(which I had been avoiding) and tried again. I hit the same problem at the
same point. So this time I said "continue". File after file was said to be
corrupt, but it appeared to be complaining that the files it was
*downloading* were corrupt.
Help!! Am I reduced to using Ubuntu (<ouch>), or has anyone got any
As I wrote that I thought of DVD1. I have never used it. Perhaps I should??
Thank you for any help or insights.
