Why cant I download the LATEST RASPBIAN Raspberry Pi website

Wed Sep 14, 2016 7:56 pm

I need to download the latest Raspbian OS or NOOB and I have been trying for the last 2 to 3 hours many times UNSUCCESSFULLY. It goes so far and it says FAILED. Is the Raspberry PI website or server is having problem or down? Could someone please tell me where I can download the latest PI OS. I certainly don't want to download from any third party website.

Well if you want to download on Raspberry Pi Foundations website then use https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads but that is from May 2016 but i do have a sourceforge site that i use to build newer raspbian images and if you want that its https://sourceforge.net/projects/raspbian/

Yes, I read your other posts and if you don't mind me asking. Who are you? And it seems that you didn't answer a question posted by another Pi user. "How can we trust you to not have a backdoor in your downloads?" :?:

there is no back doors at all, I use the same build tools that raspberry pi foundation uses to build their images https://github.com/RPi-Distro/pi-gen to make mine and all it does is just pulls all the files from the repos and make the image

The Foundation recommend that you download from the official site. Any other site could be compromised in some way. Since the poster above has not indicated what his package contains I would recommend not using it. He also appears to be using RPF logos without permission.

Keep trying on the official site, there may have been issues last night, although I am not aware of any.

If you read the above reply, i included the source code that builds my images that has all the packages included in the images. I do not add anything into my images. I only make new images that is built from https://github.com/RPi-Distro/pi-gen that the Raspberry Pi Foundation also uses to build their images. I use SourceForge for download since they check for any virus or malware in the files.I do not want any access to other people's raspberry pi's and i am also working on a website that will include all this information attached to every update

I often see that too when I need to d/l for a new Pi, same with Magpi pdfs
I only try it once, if it fails then I use wget

I find downloading using the torrent faster and more reliable as it checks for errors as it downloads.
