Hope you've managed a successful download by now!

Those varying file sizes and the failed hash really do indicate a failed

Using the download features of such as Firefox can help where a failed
or interrupted download can be restarted from where it left off...
Avoids re-downloading data already loaded.

Good luck!

Enjoy the sunshine even if the internet over there is more like
old-style dial-up... Time for another chilled beer on the beach? :-)
