If u help I'll change to 5 stars. None of the links the app uses to download its pieces of Linux work. I've tried to install both Debian & Ubuntu and both of them the whole log gets filled with "download failed" lines. And "couldn't download package" lines. Please fix the server host as obviously it must be down.
