File name too long

Cannot write to

I referred StackOverflow Link with similar issue but I am not able to figure out what is the problem.


I don't think it's really an issue with the filename. I was able to use that same command without a problem. If the filename was an issue, you could always use this to save it as a different filename:

wget -O newname.tgz

The other option is to use bitly and get a URL if the URL is just too long.

But it could be a space issue. Do you have enough disk space? Check with df -h to see your available space.
