    Linux Mint ISO file fails integrity check

    I downloaded Mint from linuxmint.com and ran the integrity check to verify the ISO, per the directions on their page. The file failed the check, so I downloaded another copy from a different mirror shown on linuxmint.com, it too failed the check. Finally tried a 3rd mirror and it passed the check.

    Any thoughts on what might be going on?

    Thanks

    Are you downloading the file as an ISO or as a torrent?

    If you can give the details of the links you used then I can do the same and see if I get the same results.

    Hope this helps...

    I am downloading as ISO, 32 bit, Mint 18.2.

    Before I posted the details of the links I used, I figured I would re-download and check them again.

    Now the files from the mirrors that failed before are verifying ok. (The ones that failed the first time around were Univ of Washington, and Clarkson Univ.)

    So I guess there is no issue now. Not sure what happened the first time.

    Thanks
