Dear Daniel and David

I downloaded AmberTools14.tar.bz2 from a different computer and different
network. The size of downloaded AmberTools14.tar.bz2 is 212395464 exactly.

After untarring, there is no problem.

After ./configure gnu, I encountered with following error:

Checking for updates...
Checking for available patches online. This may take a few seconds...
Traceback (most recent call last):

How to resolve this problem?
