Unable to install forge 1.16.5, again :)


Recommended Posts


I'm running Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS

Vanilla minecraft server (1.16.5) works fine.

I try to install forge (https://files.minecraftforge.net/net/minecraftforge/forge/index_1.16.5.html)


I run

mget https://maven.minecraftforge.net/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.16.5-36.2.19/forge-1.16.5-36.2.19-installer.jar

It finishes correctly

2021/12/04 20:53:56 start download forge-1.16.5-36.2.0-installer.jar

2021/12/04 20:53:58 Time took 2.533958402s

then I run

sudo java -jar forge-1.16.5-36.2.0-installer.jar

It says
Error: Invalid or corrupt jarfile forge-1.16.5-36.2.0-installer.jar


I've tried jre version 8 and 16, it works the same.

I've tried to download the installer in win machine it downloads the same size file, 7327418 bytes.

Pls tell me what to read to understand what am I doing wrong.

which doesn't align with original f2e0b8b9c7634fc854ce566f392dcded *forge-1.16.5-36.2.0-installer.jar

and which is in my win download...

Can you suggest what to use instead of wget?
