No. they are not the same. The Md5sums for 14.04 releases are as follows:

 dccff28314d9ae4ed262cfc6f35e5153 *ubuntu-14.04-desktop-amd64.iso
 c4d4d037d7d0a05e8f526d18aa25fb5e *ubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso

The md5sums for 14.10 are as follows:

08494b448aa5b1de963731c21344f803 *ubuntu-14.10-desktop-amd64.iso

The right place to look is one of the sources below (If you are detecting a pattern here, you're right in that the link is http://releases.ubuntu.com/version.number/MD5SUMS. where version number is yy.mm of the release in question. You can also find md5sums for the following at the aforementioned link.

Ubuntu GNOME
Ubuntu MATE


The md5sums for recent Ubuntu versions including Lubuntu Kubuntu Xubuntu, etc. can be found here and previous and point releases and their md5sums can also been found on this page. Drill down through version into release (or source) to find the sum (hash) for your version.

You can check the hash (md5sum) with the command md5sum ubuntu-version-desktop-variant.iso on a Linux system (Changing the name of the ISO file to match the one you have).

You can check the ISO under Windows using MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility available here or with Microsoft File Checksum Integrity Verifier available here.

  • Is there a safe source? That one is fine, but I would like to access that kind of information using https – Alexander Aug 17 '14 at 13:25
  • Do you know where we can find MD5 sums for other distros such as Lubuntu? – Paddy Landau Aug 18 '14 at 11:01

    @ElderGeek The link is for 14.04, not for 14.04.1. I found the Lubuntu hashes with the help of Google. I also found two relevant bug reports, one for Ubuntu and one for Lubuntu. – Paddy Landau Aug 19 '14 at 10:24
