I have deluge installed and the web ui running. It can add torrents, find peers, find DHT peers, open ports via UPnP: great! What it can't do is download anything. I get no errors, but no connections to peers or progress either. From the console:

looks like it might be a magnet link bug for deluge on all platforms. forum.deluge-torrent.org/… – BHP Nov 24 '12 at 17:15
I suggest trying transmission-cli if you want a command line torrent client. It's more lightweight and arguably more stable than deluge. – Jivings Nov 25 '12 at 8:30

As pointed out by BHP in the comments, it is/was a link bug, according to the forum post.

Given that the current version in the repository is 1.3.3, it is most likely solved. Please tell us if the problem persists.
