Not able to download ubuntu in virtual box or Vm software

I m not able to download ubuntu in virtual box or in vmsoftware can u please tell me what how can i resolve this issue

You can download it by following these steps and then run it into your Vm Software:

  1. Open the Ubuntu website. Go to in your computer’s web browser. You can download the latest Ubuntu disk image (also known as an ISO file)from here .
  2. Make sure that Ubuntu begins downloading after you click on the selected ISO file. The Ubuntu ISO should begin downloading immediately, but if it doesn’t, you can click the download now link at the top of the page.
  3. After the Ubuntu ISO file is downloaded you can go to your previously installed Vm Software and select the ISO file which you have just downloaded and click on install button. (It takes sometime while installing , in mine it took around 15 minutes to completely finish installing)
  4. That’s all. You are ready to work on it… (Hope this helps)


Can you be more specific? Where are you facing issue?

You can send screenshots of any error if there is any.

Ok i will try and let u know

Bro it still showing error


Try the below solutions one by one,

Disable Antivirus

  1. Try to disable your third-party Antivirus security temporarily
  2. Install VirtualBox after disabling the antivirus
  3. Re-enable the Antivirus after the VirtualBox is successfully installed

If necessary, also disable Windows Real-Time Network Protection from the settings. To do this:

  1. Open Start and search for Windows Security
  2. Select Virus & threat protection
  3. Click on Manage settings
  4. Turn off the Real-time protection toggle switch

Run Microsoft Program Install troubleshooter

  1. Go to Microsoft Program install troubleshooter page and click on the Download button.
  2. Run the Microsoft Program Install Troubleshooter tool and click on next.
  3. In the Are you having a problem installing or uninstalling a program screen, select Installing.
  4. The tool will scan the system for the problems and recommend appropriate action.
  5. After the fix is applied, reboot the system and check for any improvements.

Use alternative software

If none of the above solutions work out for you, use VM ware software.

If in case your laptop doesn’t support virtualization, you can go ahead an use any of the Python IDE to continue with the training.

Ok thank you akshayan.sinha

Previously m having issue regarding m not able to run ubuntu in any of the software and now m not even able run or download any of the software .
I m not able to continue my training m stuck at this point.
Can u please help and tell me which other software i can use for python so that i can further continue my training


You can use any IDE, or Powershell for that. Refer to this thread - Could not find a version that satisfies the reqirement boltiot. no matching distribution found for boltiot

Other than that, you can use an online IDE,

Bro can i do python coding for bolt devices and further remaining training on sublime


Yes, as I already mentioned, you can use any IDE to complete your project. Ubuntu was only introduced in the training to make students familiar with CLI. Which is a very usefull skill.

Let me know if you have any other query.

Can u please tell me how can i connect that to my bolt iot device because m not able to do that

Can i use the same command as mentioned to do in ubuntu in sublime


What issues are you facing? Can you elaborate? You can send snaps of any errors you have.

In case you have not installed boltiot python library, you can go through the training module.

I have mentioned a thread already, please go through that. Everything is mentioned.

Sublime is a text editor, and Ubuntu is an Operating system.

You cannot use the terminal commands in sublime. But you can write your python code in there, and run it from the windows powershell or terminal.
