Today we’re going to talk about Ansible troubleshooting, specifically about failure downloading. Downloading content from the internet sometimes you might receive the failure downloading error. The root cause is usually a misspelled URL or a content moved by the website. This error is most of the time caused by the HTTP 404 error. Double check the URL in your browser before using it in Ansible. A wrong (HTTP 404 error) URL lead to the Ansible error failure downloading. I’m Luca Berton and welcome to today’s episode of Ansible Pilot.
