Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm using Windows 7 and when I try to install and this message appears:

"An error ocurred: Could not retrieve the required installation files
For more information, please see the log file:
c:\users\.............\wubi-12.10-rev273.log"

The final part of the log ->

Could you upload the complete log to some pastebin service like pastebin.com? –  qbi Dec 17 '12 at 16:04
    
Now is giving another error in the log... pastebin.com/C1pvPQzn –  Tasso Dec 17 '12 at 16:26
    
You can try the option --skipmd5check. Maybe this helps. See also wiki.ubuntu.com/… –  qbi Dec 17 '12 at 22:28
    
That's not a good idea unless you know the ISO is good (i.e. with a development release). Remove the CD from F: and let it download a new ISO or the diskimage. Do you have an apostrophe in your user name? That's might be causing some issues: command=C:\Users\TASSO'~1\AppData\Local\Temp\pylBC2.tmp\bin\resize2fs.exe -f C:\ubuntu\disks\root.disk 17744M –  bcbc Dec 18 '12 at 1:12
    
It worked! I skiped the md5 check and it worked. Thanks! =) –  Tasso Dec 18 '12 at 14:53

The OP reported this worked. But there are other alternatives:

[Skipping the integrity check is] not a good idea unless you know the ISO is good (i.e. with a development release).

Remove the CD from F: and let it download a new ISO or the diskimage.

Do you have an apostrophe in your user name? [That] might be causing some issues:

command=C:\Users\TASSO'~1\AppData\Local\Temp\pylBC2.tmp\bin\resize2fs.exe -f C:\ubuntu\disks\root.disk 17744M
