Failed to load torrent: Error: expected value

Post by DadaMaheshvarananda »

Dear friends,
I downloaded with UBUNTU SOFTWARE: qBittorrent v4.1.7.

When I pasted in the following link to add:

https://thevpntrustzone.xyz/r?RID=B-538 ... AzNDU1NzY4

I got the following error message. The link in the error message has no relation to the above link that I pasted in:

Invalid torrent: Failed to load the torrent: /tmp/.qBittorrent/YLkKeo. Error: expected value (list, dict. int or string) in bencoded string.

I tried a few other links, and always received the same error message, though each time with a different link.

Invalid torrent: Failed to load the torrent: /tmp/.qBittorrent/YLkKeo. Error: expected value (list, dict. int or string) in bencoded string.

All this means nothing to me. Please help me figure this out?

Dada

Hi,

The current version is 4.3.7. The first move will be to update, with Ubuntu this is easy thanks to the PPA. Select Linux>Ubuntu in the download page for instructions https://www.qbittorrent.org/download.php

You can browse the bug section too seeing if something is possible with your version but at the end the most recent version should be a better move.
