So i am reading The Official Ubuntu Server Book and i just got to the part where i make a pxe boot server. Everything looks good till i am supposed to download some files using wget. The url i entered is

http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/percise/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/netboot.tar.gz

i get a 404 error. Okay..

i then go to google chrome and manually go through the folder structure and download the netboot.tar.gz file and then copy the url... here is the url.

http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/netboot.tar.gz

As you can see the url is identical. I even opened notepad and copy and pasted them one over the other to compare letter by letter, again both are the same yet the second link works. I am so stumped, this is probably an easy fix and im just not seeing it.

Any help will be much appreciated.

You write an error http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/percise/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/netboot.tar.gz

it would be correct http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/netboot.tar.gz

In your wget request you have .../percise/... and not .../precise/.... That is what causes the error.

Here is you first link:

http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/percise/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/netboot.tar.gz

Here is your second link:

http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/netboot.tar.gz

Comparing the two links:

You can see that the typo lies in the link itself.

It should be:

"precise"

instead of

"percise"

  • You got it, thank you! I cant believe i didn't see that... i literally read over those 2 lines 10 times! Guess thats what i get for staying up late! – Eugene G. Jan 19 '16 at 3:12
