    Did you find any solution?

    FYI I have 2 installations. One on the VM and another on my host OS. The host OS clones version 1.4 fine.

    Seems that your current user does not have write access to your current directory. Try to run curl command with sudo:

    sudo curl -sSL http://bit.ly/2ysbOFE | bash -s -- 1.4.7 1.4.7 0.4.20
    

    Another option is to switch to the directory in which write operations are allowed without sudo access

    Thanks Ilya. Sudo with curl worked.

    If it doesn't work for some, try this: sudo chmod 777 ~/go/src/github.com/hyperledger before executing the above command.

    And if you run into docker permission denied error then this may help:

    sudo groupadd docker // Create the docker group
    sudo usermod -aG docker $putYouruser // replace user with yours, add it to the group
    newgrp docker // or logout and login
    docker run hello-world // check here if docker for your user has got the permissions

    **Friends... I need help on the below. I tried with and without sudo and also substituted with the un-shortened URL: **

    ------> 1.4.7 platform specific fabric binary is not available to download <----

    My intention is to run the below which also fails due to the failed library installation

    ubuntu:/c/workspace/fabric-samples/first-network$ ./byfn.sh generate
    Generating certs and genesis block for channel 'mychannel' with CLI timeout of '10' seconds and CLI delay of '3' seconds

    jobysam, Hello. It looks like you could have issues with the Fabric Samples directory. These are the steps in the lab instructions:

    Run the Hyperledger Fabric bootstrap script from the
    $HOME/go/src/github.com/hyperledger folder.

    sudo mkdir -p $HOME/go/src/github.com/hyperledger

    cd $HOME/go/src/github.com/hyperledger

    curl -sSL http://bit.ly/2ysbOFE | bash -s -- 1.4.7 1.4.7 0.4.20

    The bootstrap script above clones the fabric-samples repository, downloads all necessary
    Docker images, and places the platform-specific binaries into the bin folder in the
    fabric-samples repo.
    In the fabric-samples, switch the branch to the release-1.4.

    cd fabric-samples

    git checkout release-1.4

    Next, clone the fabric repository and switch the branch to the release-1.4.

    cd ..

    git clone https://github.com/hyperledger/fabric

    cd fabric

    git checkout release-1.4

    Let me know if this helped or if your need further assistance.

    Bobbi
