Getting ERROR 404: Not Found. while trying to wget the lab tar files

Hi all, I've been trying to wget the lab files from my gcp instance but I'm getting "HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
2020-12-13 12:55:44 ERROR 404: Not Found." in return. The command I'm using is "wget https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/LFS258/LFS258V2020-10-19SOLUTIONS.tar.bz2 --user=XXXXX --password=XXXXX"
Not sure what is the mistake I'm doing here. Will appreciate your response. Thanks a lot.

    LFS258_V2020-10-19_SOLUTIONS.tar.bz2 is the right file. You are missing the underscore

  • My bad!.. Thank you very much @coop

  • Hi @Manzil,

    Perhaps the following note, found right below the wget and tar commands, was overlooked:

    (Note: depending on your PDF viewer, if you are cutting and pasting the above instructions, the underscores may disappear and be replaced by spaces, so you may have to edit the command line by hand!)
