  • @Skillmon: For some reason, I cannot load that page from where I am. I have deleted cache and cookies and changed browsers but it does not seem to help. – chandra Jun 24 '18 at 13:16

  • For some reason I cannot access either link via my ISP's wired connection. I used the hotspot from my mobile phone, using a different ISP, and can now access the link to the torrent which is tug.org/texlive/files/texlive2018-20180414.iso.torrent Thanks @Skillmon. How do I accept your answer? – chandra Jun 25 '18 at 2:14
  • You don't because those are comments, if you want to, I can write up an answer from them and you can accept that. – Skillmon Jun 25 '18 at 8:34
