Webgrab scrapes fine on windows, not on Ubuntu?

Have a very strange situation.

Ive created a grab on my local windows pc that works fine.

I transfer the ini and xml files to a ubuntu based server, and the same grab fails with timeout errors.

Im stumped?

Make sure you have the most updated Mono in Ubuntu. 
Also, make sure you have the correct user agent line in the config (windows will be different)
 
<user-agent>Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/80.0.3987.163 Safari/537.36</user-agent>

Thanks mate,

Changed the user string and no change.

I updated mono a few days ago, and all other grabs seem fine.

However, how can i check its the latest version to be certain?

You say all other grabs work fine, do you mean on Ubuntu, in other words, there's a specific site you can't grab on the Ubuntu machine?  or do you mean all other grabs work fine on Windows but not on Ubuntu?
 
Just want to clarify.
