wget not working on Linux 😲

wget not working? Add user/agent, for example: Mozilla/5.0

wget -U Mozilla/5.0 https://pcx3.com/some/file.tar.gz

or

wget -U mozilla https://pcx3.com/some/file.tar.gz

By default wget uses an uncommon user-agent Wget/VERSION, which due to various security policies some servers are blocking. To solve this, specify the user-agent when using wget.
