This is a catch-all error message for a number of different issues on the download page. Here are some of the main reasons this error can come up:

  1. You are using the wrong license key
  2. You are using the license key for a Looker-hosted instance (only self-hosted licenses can download jar files)
  3. You are using the wrong version name when selecting Specific Version (a valid example is looker-7.4-latest.jar)
  4. You are trying to download a jar for an unsupported release (more info on supported releases here)

You can find more information on the looker jar file download page here.

ERROR 400: Bad Request

One reason for this issue is the formatting for the wget command when using the API method for downloading the jar files. Following the example from the doc:

 

wget -O- --header=Content-Type:application/json </code>--post-data='{"lic": "YOURLOOKERLICENSE", "email": "contact@email.com", "latest":"specific", </code>"specific":"looker-5.24-latest.jar"}' </code>"https://apidownload.looker.com/download"

--post-data='{"lic": "YOURLOOKERLICENSE", "email": "contact@email.com", "latest":"specific", </code>"specific":"looker-5.24-latest.jar"}' </code>"https://apidownload.looker.com/download"

"specific":"looker-5.24-latest.jar"}' </code>"https://apidownload.looker.com/download"

"https://apidownload.looker.com/download"


 

wget -O- --header=Content-Type:application/json --post-data='{"lic": "YOURLOOKERLICENSE", "email":"contact@email.com", "latest":"specific", "specific":"looker-6.14-latest.jar"}' "https://apidownload.looker.com/download"

wget -O- --header=Content-Type:application/json --post-data='{"lic": "YOURLOOKERLICENSE", "email":"contact@email.com", "latest":"specific", "specific":"looker-6.14-latest.jar"}' "https://apidownload.looker.com/download"

wget -O- --header=Content-Type:application/json --post-data='{"lic": "YOURLOOKERLICENSE", "email":"contact@email.com", "latest":"specific", "specific":"looker-6.14-latest.jar"}' "https://apidownload.looker.com/download"
