Well, it's not working for some odd reason for me. Linux Mints work as you can see. I don't get it? anybody knows how to fix this

Working for me too .. maybe try another torrent client.

Or I guess your ISP could be blocking the trackers.

Not necessarily i had a similar issue recently  not with a torrent but with one website, you could try changing your DNS settings it's a long shot but it might work

Here's what I use (with great success):

Code: [Select]
╭─vindsl@Boogaloo-6 ~ 
╰─$ nmcli dev show | grep DNS
IP4.DNS[1]:                             208.67.222.222
IP4.DNS[2]:                             208.67.222.220
IP4.DNS[3]:                             8.8.8.8
IP4.DNS[4]:                             8.8.4.4
IP6.DNS[1]:                             2620:0:ccc::2
IP6.DNS[2]:                             2620:0:ccd::2
IP6.DNS[3]:                             2001:4860:4860::8888
IP6.DNS[4]:                             2001:4860:4860::8844
╭─vindsl@Boogaloo-6 ~
╰─$

BTW, that's Cisco OpenDNS [1] & [2] (as primary), and Google [3] & [4] (as secondary)

I don't bother specifying tertiary DNS servers these days   ;)

The only way you could know that for sure would be to try downloading another torrent with exactly the same trackers (are you using obfuscation/encryption ?) .. all we can do is confirm there's nothing wrong with the torrent itself, which judging by the responses above is obviously the consensus.

Thank you Awesome Peppermint Guys!  @VinDSL @emegra @zebedeeboss @rayzer @PCNetSpec >> I live in a group home through an agency and DNS is through them it's there own DNS.  So it may be blocking just those trackers. hmm which is weird because I'm a torrent buff and download many things :-\ :D type Linux. I may need to get VPN and it might work?

Just to rule out a software problem, it might be worth seeing if the torrent works in a Live (LiveUSB) session.
