Downloading WordPress - failed

Downloading WordPress [Fail]
Oops Something went wrong !!
Calling cleanup actions …

Hi, I’m seeing this issue on our servers. Further investigation points to a corrupt 4.8.2 archive. It’s actually WP-CLI that’s reporting this error.

I’m working around this issue by creating a mysql site with EE, then using:

wp core download --version=4.2.1

Then installing manually using the web interface and the database details from:

ee site info site_name

More information here:

I suspect this will be fixed by the WP devs in the coming days.

Hope that helps,

Thank you Siddharth

After several attempts, I researched a lot and managed to take a step to solve my problem, ubunto server 14.04 / EasyEngine v3.7.4 root@ubuntu:~# sudo su root@ubuntu:~# wp cli update --allow-root root@ubuntu:~# ee update root@ubuntu:~# ee stack purge root@ubuntu:~# ee stack install

I’m working with the following system versions, the above solution worked for me. ***Ubuntu Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS Release: 14.04 Codename: trusty
