Verifying download Fedora-KDE iso download error

Could anybody tell me what mistake I am making. Sorry if my knowledge of these procedures is not good enough

I downloaded Fedora-KDE-Live-x86_64-39-1.5.iso into my ~/Download directory
Saved Fedora-Spins-39-1.5-x86_64-CHECKSUM into the same directory
Tried to follow instruction for verifying download

Succesfully imported Fedora’s GPG keys

Step 3 gpgv --keyring ./fedora.gpg Fedora-Spins-39-1.5-x86_64-CHECKSUM failed: No such file or directory
Modified the command to read gpgv --keyring ./fedora.gpg ~/Downloads/Fedora-Spins-39-1.5-x86_64-CHECKSUM
Result: gpgv: Good signature from “Fedora (39) fedora-39-primary@fedoraproject.org

Step 4 sha256sum -c Fedora-Spins-39-1.5-x86_64-CHECKSUM
result: No such file or directory
Modified into: sha256sum -c ~/Downloads/Fedora-Spins-39-1.5-x86_64-CHECKSUM
This results in the following
Fedora-Budgie-Live-x86_64-39-1.5.iso: FAILED open or read plus 9 more lines touching every available spin of Fedora

Change directory to ~/Downloads/ and run sha256sum -c Fedora-Spins-39-1.5-x86_64-CHECKSUM again.

As mentioned, ch into the Dowloads directory before running the sha256sum command.
Also note that the checksum file is for all the spins and will show an error for every iso it does not find. However the important issue is that it should show OK for the iso you have already downloaded there.

The only concern would be if the iso already downloaded were to report an error. If that happened the iso is corrupt and should be removed and downloaded again.
