i received a 403 “forbidden” error code when is use wget to pull the Linux terraform zip
no issues here.
which URL were you using?
Due to how
releases.hashicorp.com is currently implemented (as an CDN in front of an Amazon S3 bucket), it quirkily returns 403 Forbidden in situations where it would be more appropriate to return 404 Not Found, so my first guess here would be that the URL you’re using isn’t quite right. I’d echo @tbugfinder’s question about exactly what URL you are using, so I can confirm that it seems like a valid URL and suggest an adjusted URL if not.
