Thank you in advance!

What version of Go are you using (go version)?

Not applicable.

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?

Yes.

What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?

Fedora 31 on amd64

What did you do?

I tried to copy the link from here; specifically, where it says "Download the archive and extract it into /usr/local, creating a Go tree in /usr/local/go". The "Download the archive" portion is a hyperlink to the Go tarball.

What did you expect to see?

I expected for the hyperlink to be "https://dl.google.com/go/go1.13.8.linux-amd64.tar.gz" instead of "https://golang.org/dl/".

What did you see instead?

The "Download the archive" hyperlink resolves to "https://golang.org/dl/" and not "https://dl.google.com/go/go1.13.8.linux-amd64.tar.gz".

Hi,

well, the link on "Download the archive" points to the generic dl page because pointing to the linux/amd64 archive would be wrong for anyone not running linux on amd64, right? I'm not sure why you'd expect the link to point to the linux/amd64 archive. Have I misunderstood your report?

Hi - You know what? I was totally off base here. You are correct. My apologies.

For some reason, I had though in the past that the installation instructions used the Linux amd64 link as an example.

I apologize :). I can either close this or the team can.
