Academy Linux Fundamentals - Installing strace

edited July 18 in Other

My Son and I are going through the Linux Fundamentals together but in the Package Management lesson when trying to:
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/s/strace/strace_4.21-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb

we continue to get:
Connecting to archive.ubuntu.com (archive.ubuntu.com)|91.189.88.142|:80... failed: Connection timed out.
Connecting to archive.ubuntu.com (archive.ubuntu.com)|91.189.88.152|:80...

We have tried wget from other locations but still haven't had any luck. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hey,

    The problem is not your command - I tested it locally and it works fine.

    I think the problem is that the Parrot VM for the challenge blocks outgoing HTTP requests to all domains except www.github.com - if you look at the optional challenge included in the section it only asks you to try to install a package from www.github.com. You can test this by trying to wget any other site - wget www.google.com, wget www.nhl.com, everything fails except www.github.com

    Basically, you're doing everything right, but the machine isn't set up to do anything except github stuff.
