My Pis arrived yesterday, and to get started I tried to download the images on a windoze 10 box, and each time if failed with a nebulous ‘network error’. i know my network is in good shape, so this was difficult to diagnose. I also tried it on an Ubuntu machine, so far it seems to be behaving. Any insight would be appreciated.
without any deeper information it is impossible to help you…which image do you try to download from where?
official sources are
first one should be stable, so Problem must be in your local net, maybe your router
Can you please let us know which image you tried to download?
I was able to download it with an Ubuntu machine, using Firefox. For some reason Google Chrome on the same network gets a network failure mid-download.
