im trying to download linux on my Lenovo Chromebook C340-15 (thats what it says at the bottom of the Chromebook) and i am constantly getting errors saying that it cant download the virtual machine and stuff like that. its up to date, and i tried restarting it, but it still wont budge. will somebody tell me how to download it without constantly getting the same error over and over again, please?

thank you,

edit: its not giving a reason to why its doing this.
another edit: remember, its a Lenovo Chromebook C340-15 which means certain ways to solve it might not work

Hi Aaron S.D.
 
It may be due to limited storage. 
 
I suggest you run a Powerwash to start afresh then try again.

Let' get a few details so we can help you.
  • Open a browser tab and enter the following URL: chrome://os-settings/help
  • Then, click on "Additional details"
  • On the "Build Details" line, click on the icon that says:
    "Copy build details to clipboard" when you hover over it.
  • Then paste (Ctrl+v, or right-click Paste) the results in your reply.
That will provide important information that will help us with troubleshooting.

that sounds very dangerous and risky. i dont know how to recover my files after running a powerwash if possible or if Google Account settings sync will still work and recover my Chrome browser bookmarks, extensions, etcetera by itself just like it does when i sign in on other devices. because the Powerwash might erase settings, key word: might. i am not sure.
