laravel installation - transfer closed while add vagrant box

Posted 3 years ago by evinkuraga

I've been trying to add the laravel/homestead box by running the command : $ vagrant box add laravel/homestead

The problem is that the box takes quite a while to download even though I actually have a 50mbps connection. After about 15 minutes, the connection closes and I get the message : transfer closed with 832698891 bytes remaining to read

Each time I try to run the command again, I need to delete the contents of my .vagrant.d/tmp/ folder because it can't resume from where it left off... so after a bunch of tries, I was wondering what to do?

I've even tried downloading the file from the browser by going to the url specified : This gives me a hc-download file that's about 950mb. Then running the command : vagrant box add laravel/homestead ~/downloads/hc-download also gives me an error: x ./box-disk1.vmdk: truncated gzip input bsdtar.EXE: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

At this point, I'm not sure how to address the issue. Searched a few forums and wasn't able to find anything. Any advice?
