I'd imagine your downloaded ISO is corrupt then.

That's probably it. Dl it again. Torrent dl is faster and more reliable ... there's some checksumming there.

If torrent works for you, then that's a good thing. And even if torrent does checksum computations, always trust but verify. And then after burning the ISO to DVD/USB, verify again.
