Download page not working at the moment

Just tried to download UM 16.04 32 bit and the download is not working at present, either for direct or torrent.

While I was there, I decided to test the download for the 64 bit version. This is also not working at present.

It is currently 5:19pm on Friday 21/10/16

The Magnet link is still working, however.

You may know this, but just in case, or for others, you can always find downloads at cdimage.ubuntu.com, eg for 16.04.1: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-mate/releases/16.04.1/release/

I wonder if this is related to the DNS DDOS attack going on at the moment?

It seems the attack restarted, and I don’t know about attack 2.0 but the first was supposed to affect eastern US only, and only this one provider Dyn, Inc.
The download servers don’t appear to depend on that provider for resolving:

ouroumov@Box:~/Desktop$ host -t NS cdimage.ubuntu.com
cdimage.ubuntu.com name server ns3.canonical.com.
cdimage.ubuntu.com name server ns1.canonical.com.
cdimage.ubuntu.com name server ns2.canonical.com.

Contrary to github, that does:

ouroumov@Box:~/Desktop$ host -t NS github.com
github.com name server ns2.p16.dynect.net.
github.com name server ns1.p16.dynect.net.
github.com name server ns3.p16.dynect.net.
github.com name server ns4.p16.dynect.net.

So my guess is: unlikely

Strange. I was aware GitHub was experiencing DNS issues today, I didn’t realise Canonical was impacted too.

The download links / connection to Canonical is working here from my region (in the UK). Are things working for you now @stevecook172001?

Yep, it’s working now.
