I assume you’re following this article:

You can also make sure that you haven’t copied some additional characters in the curl command itself:

curl -sSL | sudo bash

Also another thing to add, can you try pinging the source site/domain as well, just to see if it’s not a networking issue:


Looking forward to your reply.

facing same issue one of my do instance i have tried to ping showing me
