Here is the secret method to simply Download Ubuntu 20.04 Server

Very often you want to download a new os to install VMs on a server or the like. Usually they just give a link on their website to download the file, which you then need to upload to your server. So here is the latest curl command. The minus capital O means to save it to a file instead of to STDIN

curl -O https://mirror.isoc.org.il/pub/ubuntu-releases/20.04.2/ubuntu-20.04.2-live-server-amd64.iso

 

Here is the same for Alpine Linux

curl -O https://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v3.13/releases/x86_64/alpine-extended-3.13.2-x86_64.iso
