Have downloaded the latest version of Wubi and have started the installation procedure but it halts giving the following error: "Cannot download the metalink and therefore the ISO"

What does this mean and what can I do to correct it please?

Well, I wouldn't bother with a Wubi install myself as it has been problematic for some.

If you want to have a look a Kubuntu and how it will work on your system you'd be better of downloading a suitable CD image, writing it to a CD or USB flash drive and booting from that as a live session. Then, if you like it, at some stage install it on your hard drive.

If you really want to use Wubi then yes, download the ISO manually and install from there.

However, I also suggest you don't use Wubi as it cause more problems than it solves.
