Hi
I am new to the Rasberry experience. I dont actually have one yet but im reading and learning as much as i can about everything i can.
With this in mind i thought i would download some programs from this site.
I tried with rasbian lite but keep getting a security error about the validation of certification.
Help / advice please
Thanks
Simon

Can you rewind a step and explain how you can use Raspbian Lite to try to download something if you don't have an RPi board to run that Operating System on?

OP is referring to download the Raspbian Lite Image file from the site in order to be able to install on an SD card ready for when they get a Pi.

There is a known issue with the download site at the moment. Hopefully it will be fixed later today.

I got also an error with the torrent site.
I downloaded the image with wget in a terminal. The sha-256 sum is correct. The file is without file extension, just "raspbian_lite_latest" without .img.
Thanks for fixing this.
