!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:

Hi,

I am fairly new to Jupyter and I am encountering a similar problem. I did the following to get my files from dropbox before unziping in the COLAB notebook offered by google.

“!wget -O DATA DROPBOX_LINK”

However, it just gets me a 301 redirect with Moved Permanently and then 400 bad request.

Anyone know how to circumnavigate this problem?

Thanks.
