I've configured it as per the man page, yet it refuses to download a torrent. I can load the torrent up, everything looks alright, but the download will not start. Instead, it throws the following error:

Could not open file "...": No such file or directory

Mind you, this is a file that it's yet to download, because it will not begin. I've tried the keybindings to manually start the torrent, but it just sits at that error message and won't budge.

I couldn't find much on the error on Google, except a handful of people that ran into it without posting a solution. I was hoping somebody here knows the problem and can help.

Does another torrent cli such as Deluge work?

I was going to suggest that. I found that rtorrent is not very well documented, lacks lots of features (upnp, magnet links, proper handling of partial downloads, etc) and the developers don't seem to care at all. So I've switched to deluge and find it much better :)
