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.

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.

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.
