Bug Description

Hi
I have been attempting to download kubuntu-16.04.2-desktop-i386.iso through the following websites:

https://kubuntu.org/getkubuntu/
http://www.kubuntu.org/alternative-downloads
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/releases/16.04.2/release/

I have downloaded this file through these sources at least 5 times and each time I check the md5sum hash through winMd5Sum or MD5 for windows it consistently produces the same hash which doesn't match with the ones to be found at the second or third sites listed above.

Am I looking in the right place to verify the hash? I am attempting this on a desktop and laptop both currently running Windows XP. Should I attempt another flavour of Ubuntu?

Best

Tim

Could you please give us the hash that you 'consistently' get please?

Hi,

Can you provide the hash the downloaded file is generating?
