The downloads section from Ubuntu 23.10.1 (Mantic Minotaur) still only shows every version except the amdx64. I don’t want to download 5+ Gb of data to get a few MBs of difference with Zsync.

The amd64 final releases don’t seem to show up on cdimage.ubuntu.com. Instead they are on releases.ubuntu.com: https://releases.ubuntu.com/23.10.1/.

Just to be clear, there is a zsync URL at the link I posted.

Tried running it and get this
failed on url https://releases.ubuntu.com/23.10.1/ubuntu-23.10.1-desktop-amd64.iso.zsync
could not read control file from URL https://releases.ubuntu.com/23.10.1/ubuntu-23.10.1-desktop-amd64.iso.zsync

IIRC zsync doesn’t support https, so try the same link with http only.

dropped the s and zsync ran properly.
If anyone else wants a go rename the mantic-desktop-amd64.iso to ubuntu-23.10.1-desktop-amd64.iso
As a side-note either of the two links zsync link work without bother as they are both http

There is no difference between them or the ubuntu-23.10.1-desktop-amd64.iso apart from the name.

Here’s the difference:

http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20231016.1/ will be going away eventually as the daily images start rolling for the new development branch, so no, it’s not the same. It’s the same in the sense that it was the release candidate image that eventually got published as the final release, as is the way it works when we’re working on the final release.

http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/pending/ will eventually roll to the next daily build. It doesn’t go away per se, but it becomes a new daily build.

Source: I’m the release manager for two Ubuntu flavors and am in constant contact with the Ubuntu Release team, so it’s very much my business to know.

The amd64 and zsync are still missing from the current.
This has been the case since the 23.10 mantic was pulled

Index of /daily-live
This is what I use to determine today’s, current or pending downloads.
Everything is listed separately.

Probably. The current no longer shows an amd64 or zsync link for the amd64 any more though.
I honestly am just curious as all the other flavours do and it was only after the 23.10 mantic was pulled that it went away and never returned.
This is not a complaint nor a criticism of any of the Canonical developers.
Running Ubuntu 23.10 on 5 bare metal and two flavours dual booting on two of those.

All good now. Thank you all.

Either way, this is not the place to ask about this as this is considered a technical support question. Closed, and for future reference, there are places on the Ubuntu Forums to ask about this or by using a mailing list at https://lists.ubuntu.com
