No need to hammer Lewis with negatives for this question. A newcomer will be understandably peeved and frustrated when they try to download right now. I think it's valid question and should be left alone, or answered with a possible solution. –  fabricator4 Oct 20 '12 at 23:27
    
Had this issue today, using mint instead if ubuntu can't maintain their own mirrors or give you different options for the iso download –  Kenneth Wilke Oct 31 '13 at 18:34

Quantal Quetzal 12.10 has just been released. The servers are being hammered.

I suggest you try a bitTorrent download.

I've been getting my iso images through the official bitTorrent for a few years now, for several reasons:

  1. Packets are fully verified and fixed if faulty. I haven't had a bad md5sum since I started using this method (had a couple of expensive dud downloads prior to that though)
  2. It's quicker than downloading directly at times like now, when many thousands of people are all trying to get a new release.
  3. You can re-seed the iso if you want. I normally reseed at least 10:1 and in fact I have the 32 and 64 bit releases of 10.04.1 sitting idle but ready for anyone who wants a few blocks.
