    TYVM! This got me there
    They have moved the target file. Using Chrome i did a right-click, “Copy Link address”, on the file link, on their website. Then, pasted it into command line to get this, which worked:

    $ wget http://get.code-industry.net/public/master-pdf-editor-3.4.12_amd64.deb

    Thank you a lot for this. This is exactly what I was looking for as a replacement for Adobe DC. I have played with Ubuntu for a while, and finally kicked windows to the curb.
