I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 12.04 in VMware, and every time I try it reports that several files in the iso are corrupt. I have tried re-downloading several times and it has not helped. What can I do?

  • Provided 9c21c99bab91462b6ca779bfcaccb1de466b9ad0309a9dbd6d196b4918cc72ef - Check output x.x looks fine, guess ill try another mirror.
  • I tried another mirror and got the same thing. The ./pool/main/s/sphinx/python-sphinx_1.1.3+dfsg-2ubuntu2.1_all.deb file failed the MD5 checksun verification. Your CD-ROM or this file may have been corrupted. Could it be a bad release?

Check the SHA-256 hash of the downloaded ISO to make sure it equals the SHA-256 given. If not, try a different mirror. –  Mechanical snail Sep 28 '12 at 4:15

If they do match, then your ISO is not corrupt. Where is it giving the "corrupt" error message? –  Mechanical snail Sep 28 '12 at 4:43
    
@Mechanicalsnail I tried another mirror and got the same thing. The ./pool/main/s/sphinx/python-sphinx_1.1.3+dfsg-2ubuntu2.1_all.deb file failed the MD5 checksun verification.
