    Am I missing something? Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

  • Hi,

    The md5 sum is in the file ending in .md5. It is used simply to verify the integrity of the file you downloaded (not its authenticity). To verify its authenticity you must use gpg to check the detached signature (which is the file ending in .sig).

    Cheers!

  • @lots.0.logs Thanks. This is what I have:

  • @cribari Seems like you confront two md5sums - 1st, calculated for iso file, and 2nd, calculated for md5 file.

    They must not and will never match (coincide) one with another.

    There’s no need to calculate the md5sum for md5 file. You should open it in a text editor, get the md5sum contained inside it (a simple text string), and confront that value against those calculated for downloaded iso.

    The md5sum, which you report for downloaded iso in OP and here, is identical to those in the md5 file. The download is absolutely correct. Can’t figure out, what’s wrong, where the problem is?
