!wget is malfunctioning

Hi there. I am relatively new to Jupyter Notebooks, but I think it uses iPython. I might be completely mistaken, but the general point is that I can’t use !wget to download from dropbox. My code is
!wget https://(Internet address here)
I keep getting the error message /bin/sh: wget: command not found. Is there either an easier way to access dropbox files or another way to get it from the internet version of dropbox? Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi @King_Of_Sting, you may need to pip install the wget python module first. See the PyPI docs here: https://pypi.org/project/wget/ :slight_smile:
