Sorry, one shouldn't use SU for jokes. It just reminded me of an old sketch including the line (spoken by Gerald the Gorilla) "Wild!? I was absolutely livid"

Brilliant - this isn't quite the answer but it got me there. It turned out that if I ignored the large warning asking for the source directory and just click install it all worked. So you pointed me in the right direction, even if it was just-click-the-button rather than fix-your-DNS that was the key! Doh

comment Are microSD cards lockable?
It is an 'embedded' device I'm building, so this is useful. Since this is clearly a software answer you may want to get in quick and answer on SO too before the question's closed there.
