Linux images are impossible to download.
#6
Not to add fuel to the fire, but it is not necessarily his internet connection. The OP is correct in indicating that large file downloads (specifically releases) are occasionally flakey. I (in Australia, not the UK) only have issues with downloading from github - nowehere else, but it is intermittent. I offset this issue by using aria2, usually with 4 connections (-x4) and when I got the 403 errors from github I just run the download again to let aria2 resume and finish. Often in my case it fails in the last 1-2%, so it only takes a coulpe of seconds to finish then.

As far as the bunch of links provided, I would question the relevance of some of them, as git-lfs and other git releated issues are nothing to do with the releases hosting provided via Amazon Web Services.

However, I strongly agree with Luke. Images which are considered stable and ready for use are also hosted by pine64 themselves. The 'pre-release' images from ayufan can be considered alpha/development/testing releases, and the 'release' images from ayufan can be considered beta images.

If your problem is accessing the rockpro64 images, I would be willing upload a select few to my VPS over in Amsterdam and give links for HTTP download and might try seeing if I can get torrent hosting going. Tell me which of the images you want (strech, bionic, minimal, mate, omv, etc) and I'll download and mirror them. I'll only do a few as whilst network bandwidth isn't an issue (unmetered 200Mbit), storage is Wink
