    Hello. I am running Ubuntu-1804-bionic-v20201014 on Google Cloud.

    I tried to install NoMachine using wget

    I am following instructions I found and the original instructions gave an error because I was trying to get a version of NoMachine that no longer exists. I tried the command mentioned here

    NoMachine Forums – A successful story in setting up NoMachine with Nvidia driver on AWS

    which is

    wget  <a href="https://download.nomachine.com/free/linux/64/deb" rel="nofollow">https://download.nomachine.com/free/linux/64/deb</a> -O nomachine.deb

    but this is what I get

    root@demolinux:~# wget https://download.nomachine.com/free/linux/64/deb -O nomachine.deb--2021-05-28 09:25:08-- https://download.nomachine.com/free/linux/64/deb Resolving download.nomachine.com (download.nomachine.com)... 83.222.232.25Connecting to download.nomachine.com (download.nomachine.com)|83.222.232.25|:443... connected.HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 302 Moved Temporarily Location: https://www.nomachine.com [following]--2021-05-28 09:25:09-- https://www.nomachine.com/Resolving www.nomachine.com (www.nomachine.com)... 80.92.83.101, 80.92.83.98, 80.92.83.99Connecting to www.nomachine.com (www.nomachine.com)|80.92.83.101|:443... connected.HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OKLength: unspecified [text/html]Saving to: ‘nomachine.deb’nomachine.deb [ <=> ] 142.86K 431KB/s in 0.3s 2021-05-28 09:25:11 (431 KB/s) - ‘nomachine.deb’ saved [146288]

    then if I try to install I get this:

    root@demolinux:~# sudo apt install ./nomachine.debReading package lists... Error!E: Sub-process Popen returned an error code (2)E: Encountered a section with no Package: headerE: Problem with MergeList /root/nomachine.debE: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.root@demolinux:~#

    Can anyone spot what I am doing wrong? Thank you.

    Willie108, the same thread shows the correct link to use, just a few rows down 🙂

    https://forums.nomachine.com/topic/my-successful-story-in-setting-up-nvidia-driver-on-aws#post-28650

    Does that work for you?
