This question already has an answer here:

Im trying to install kubuntu 12 with wubi, but I get

Cannot download the metalink and therefore the ISO

everytime I try to install.

My ISO name is

kubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-i386

Im running Windows 7 x86, I also tried the parameter "--32bit" but nothing works.

The last lines of my log:

Have you tried checking the Kubuntu iso for errors (before boot)? Also have verified MD5 checksums? It is possible the iso is corrupted... –  upapilot Oct 15 '13 at 3:42
    
Did you verify the integrity of the iso file by checking its md5 hash? –  BRKsays Oct 17 '13 at 3:39

1 Answer 1

Your wubi.exe is not up to date. For 12.04.3 you need rev.279.

Could you include where to get an updated version? –  gertvdijk Oct 16 '13 at 21:38
