ERROR :bzip2: (stdin) is not a bzip2 file. error


hi
I've been trying to decompress lfs-packages-6.0.tar but i keep getting the following error :
root@UBUNTU-32bit:/home/user# tar -jxf lfs-packages-6.0.tar
bzip2: (stdin) is not a bzip2 file.
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now


i run the following command:
root@UBUNTU-32bit:/home/user# file lfs-packages-6.0.tar
lfs-packages-6.0.tar: POSIX tar archive (GNU)

how to unpack this file?

You're trying to (b)unzip an uncompressed tar file. Try omitting the "j" option.
