Then re download it. The file has corrupted in transmission from the server to your system. If you use torrents then you are more likely to get a good file as the torrent protocol adds extra error checking.

You have to be sure to compare against the correct values. In http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04.1/MD5SUMS you have to select the right line, in you case most probably

119cb63b48c9a18f31f417f09655efbd *ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso

If you get a different value, you have to restart the download.

Can you help with this problem?
