@paulparker as indicated in the error, send an email to the webmaster on the issue :wink:

To read epubs, install Calibre. It’s viewer can handle epubs just fine. :slight_smile:

To install Calibre I recommend following the instructions on the website calibre - Download for Linux
Download for Linux
The latest release of calibre is 6.21.0. What’s new.

Please do not use your distribution provided calibre package, as those are often buggy/outdated. Instead use the Binary install described below.
Binary install

calibre has a binary install that includes private versions of all its dependencies. It runs on 32-bit and 64-bit Intel compatible machines. To install or upgrade, simply copy paste the following command into a terminal and press Enter:
sudo -v && wget -nv -O- https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.sh | sudo sh /dev/stdin

While you wait for the download to complete, please consider contributing to support the development of calibre.

I’ve been doing that for years, and it works great. If you like it, be sure to do the last step.

Was able to downloaded the PDFs a few minutes ago,
my thanks to the team :slight_smile:

crmrhm thanks for that info, will take a look at Calibre again, am remembering that used it previously.

I would not recommend to a person that needs help to view epub files (we all start somewhere!) to pipe an installation script into sudo sh.

There are safer alternatives :

Please do not run wget … | sudo sh unless you know what you’re doing.
