Issues with cdimage server

I'm pretty sure someone already knows this but the cdimage.ubuntu.com server doesn't seem to be working correctly. I downloaded the latest daily build to begin this weeks testing phase (my own schedule), and there's problems with the ISO. I created my startup disk as usual but upon restart, I get a big error box that says the installer's not working properly and I tried this three times and I got the same error each time. So now I've had to, *gulps hard*, reinstall windows 10 JUST to get a clean download of 18.04 from the main website for kubuntu and then make a startup disk just to get kubuntu back on my laptop. Ugh. And then try again with a new daily build of 19.04, which I've been testing. I sure dislike being away from the real world of Kubuntu.

The bug causing ubiquity to crash on startup should now be fixed I hope,
and today's iso has been re-spun to include the fixed package.

I always keep a disk (or 3) of known working ISO in case of problems I can
load an older version that I at least know works.

also I have multiple HDD in my computer and when loading a new build I
disconect all but one HDD leaving a boot build on one of the disconected
drives. if there is a problem I switch the plugs and boot from one of the
other drives.

so have parachute and reserve chute.

Bob: sounds like a good plan. I'll have to invest in some more equipment when I can.

Yeah, that is fallout from Ubuntu sprucing up the css for the main
Ubuntu cd pages, with unintended consequences for the pages of some
flavours, due to shared code.

Fortunately it's just cosmetic.

Again, waiting on a fix.

If you are referring to the Disco daily build isos, and this bug:

<a href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1805685" title="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1805685">https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1805685</a>

then as you can see from that, a fix is on the way and I'm just waiting
for a Core/ubiquity Developer to do an upload.
