execution error

Hello, I'm running puppy tahr 6.0.2. I'm try to run calibre e-book reader. When I go to execute from command-line I get this error message. Can not execute binary file. Doe's anyone have any ideas why? This is the first time I have seen this warning error message.

the file cant be run on your hardware, may be a 32bit binary on a non multilib 64bit ststem or vice versa, may be a windows bianry on a linux machine etc check what you are trying to install, did you get it from the official repos? Try
file /path/to/binary
And post the output
