Loading pretrained model error


I was downaloding vgg19 pretrained model, but it stopped because of not enough space.

So, after making enough space I tried redownloading the model with


but I got error saying

RuntimeError Traceback (most recent call last)

How can I solve it?

Try to clear the downloaded model and download it again? On my CentOS, the model is stored in ~/.torch/models directory.

Oh thanks a lot!!

I thought it is ~/torch/models not ~/.torch/models so I couldn’t find downloaded file.

If it solves your problem, you can mark my answer as solution.

If you are using Window 10 machine, deleting vgg16-something in folder C:\Users\UserName\.cache\torch\checkpoints would solve probelm.
