    I have no idea whats going on but lately i cannot download any torrents, its stuck on '' downloading meta data and connecting to peers''... most of the torrents has a high number of seeds too.

    I also tried with and without a VPN.

    I've tried Utorrent, Bittorrent and Qbittorent and yeah i've uninstalled and reinstalled many times out of frustration but still nothing. :/

    It's just a link for the Ubuntu Installer. Scroll down to "BitTorrent" and click on any link, it will download a .torrent file. Open it in BitTorrent and see if the download starts.

    Is there some minimum seed amount? if a torrent has like 1 or 0 seeds... can it still work?

    i'm just curious, although even torrents with 1000 seeds dont download for me :/

    Do you have an active firewall/antivirus software? It would seem something is blocking the transfer of p2p data.

    Do you still have problem with this? I found out that my OS did not let me download magnet links before for unknown reason. I swapped to a different OS and it worked. I really dont enjoy working with Windows, especially W10. Such a spyware if you ask me.

    in uTorrent
    right click on torrent, goto advance and select clear peer list, then restart uTorrent and force re-check your torrent.
    it might help
