This seems to be an issue with Ubuntu's website.

You can download the latest Windows Ubuntu Installer here: At CNET (Hit the green button in the top left, under the word "Wubi")

This is a trustworthy website and I would not expect any issues from downloading from here but I cannot take any responsibilities for any issues you have with this website.

Once you have downloaded the tool you can proceed as normal, if you require any further help with the Windows Ubuntu Installer let me know.

Hope this helps,
