The Vuze application won't download any torrent, it just says failed and it doesn't give me an error message. Attached is a screenshot

It looks like you are tryign to download a torrent using the magnet functionality and for some reason it fails.
When you click that "Details" on that screen, you should see more explanation about the progress of the magnet loading process.

Using "magnet" is rather new, and works best with popular torrents. If you try to download something old and with only a few seeds/peers, it is quite possible that magnet does not work.

All the details button does is displays the address of the torrent. I tried to download something that was 17 hours old, 19047 seeds and 7604 peers and it still failed

Nineteen thousand seeds?

I wouldn't trust a torrent 17 hours old with that many seeds and peers.
