Full Gnome Desktop Installation is taking forever

I am trying to install full Gnome desktop on my Ubuntu 18.04 server. I am executing following command first:
$ sudo apt install tasksel

Not its been running for last 5 hours and seems stuck at “Retrieving file 1072 of 1084” and progress is 14%. Yesterday it ran for whole day and probably also night and when I checked this morning, there was an error saying the command failed because of not able to fetch/download all files. Now when I ran it again, it started from what it seemed like where it left last time.

Next command I will run is
$ sudo tasksel install ubuntu-desktop

Is there any other/faster way to install full Gnome desktop?

Thanks in advance.

Your question reads like a support question to me, and this is not a support site.

I’d recommend looking at https://community.ubuntu.com/t/finding-help/712 which includes a list of support sites available including irc, forums, q&a & more.

yes, got it. thanks.
