Bash - 404:: command not found

The error

Just a reminder that after the download of a bash script from a web server, you may get the following error:

theScript.sh: line 1: 404:: command not found

The reason

The reason is that the script theScript.sh was not found when you download it. For instance:

wget https://hostname/theScript.sh

And the web server has returned the following text file

404: Not Found

Then wen you try to execute it:

bash theScript.sh

You get the error because 404 which is the first word, is seen as a command and is not found.
