Constant template download issues.

Hello. I have a very strange issue with proxmox. Whenever i try and download a template (ubuntu 20.4 for example) It will always fail a different way. It can, freeze with a common interrupt, dazed and confused, do nothing but loose connection, or completely freeze with a very odd graphical glitch. I am on proxmox VE 8.0 and have no clue what to do. I have tried reinstalling as well. Edit: This is what the download output always shows.

downloading to /var/lib/vz/template/cache/ubuntu-20.04-standard_20.04-1_amd64.tar.gz
