I solved my download's bad digital signature issue by using a different browser. All of my previous downloads had been working in Firefox until May 2019. Today the download worked, but using IE11. I found it odd that the download stopped several times, for which I had to click on "resume" for it to complete. The digital signature turned out ok.

My take on this is that some browsers treat the download as one big file, while others treat it as a number of smaller files contained in the bigger one. Then somehow one or some of these inner files gets corrupted during download and at the end of the process the digital signature fails.

I get the same 1335 error code. It doesn't matter how many retrys or re downloads. It is a classic FAIL. I'm abandoning Libre.

Well, you probably found some broken mirror... and you could of course ask for help to get link to http://downloadarchive.documentfounda..., where you could pick mirror manually; and also you could help project by pointing to the failing mirror... but you can also bash on those unknown to you who did something to provide something to you for free, and disrespect what they did because of some failure. That's a valid choice, too.

The download is directly through One would assume they should know their own mirrors?

No, the mirrors are offered by independent organizations for free. LibreOffice (TDF) itself is not a commercial organization that could itself afford to have enough bandwidth or hardware.

Just don't know what to say. You could already figure that in case when some software is being downloaded tens of millions times each version, the repeated failure must be something unusual, not attributed to the software as a whole. It could be a mirror issue (as I suggested); or it could be something with internet connection; or a problem ()like broken previous installation) on user's system ... did you check the checksum of downloaded file is correct?

I know nothing of how to do checksum. All I can say is Norton says file is safe.

Well, at least, could you please post here the specific link(s) that gave you the corrupt file?

Btw: could you try to disable Norton antivirus for the duration of installation to check if that's related?

the internet is full of posts about people having issues installing Libreoffice to Windows 8.1

BrianMack gravatar imageBrianMack ( 2017-12-03 22:11:19 +0200 )edit

... and of other posts where they report success

Personally I used to use Win 8.1, before switched to Win10. And I have never has such issues. That doesn't mean that there's no problems; just that they aren't easy to reproduce for anyone, and possibly are specific to some software configuration that no one having the problem had reported clearly.

Hi Gaz47

The error is telling you that your download is corrupt (or incomplete). It either is or it isn't.

Methods are given in Q59243 to easily check whether it is corrupt or not (search for "Fixing Error 1335"). If it is corrupt then you need to re-download the file. If the MSI file is pristine then you have caught the very first confirmed instance of modern M$ AARD mis-direction.

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔)
...and/or show you like it with an uptick ()
