Unable to unzip (extract) an archive


I am attempting to setup an Arma 3 Exile server and have run into what appears to be a Linux problem. This is my second time ever using Linux but I thought this would be a fun little project and learning opportunity.

Although I've posted on their forum, I've yet to receive a response and thought I'd ask those more focused on Linux.


Relevant Information

Downloads Page

Issue:

Using unzip and 7zip I am unable to extract files downloaded directly from the Exile website (listed above). As there is only one mirror for the server files, I'm unable to test the validity of the files, though I would hope as old as the files are, a corruption would have been reported by now.

Process:

I go to the download page and right click on the link leading to the direct download, clicking "copy link address". I think paste it into MobaXTerm right after the "wget" command. The file downloads but I am unable to open it in any folder. I get a return message mentioning suggesting the file is not an archive or is corrupted.

What I've tried:

- unzip
- 7zip
- 7zip -F and FF

When I am able tonight I will try to upload some images of my errors. If anyone thinks they can help but maybe needs more info please feel free to post what you need. Thank you all in advance!

Not a "Linux problem" at all. The zip appears to be corrupt at the server. The downloaded file is very small (less than 30k) and is html text. Maybe try the .rar - I didn't download it all, but it looks sane.
The client also looks sensible.

I've saved a snip of the logs in the attachments for this reply. Thank you both for your responses and assistance. To double check my network, I downloaded the files onto another rig (windows) and it works fine. In addition, the other file (client files from the Exile site) are working fine on the LINUX machine. So is it possible there's just something about the server files link or archive that my setup doesn't like? It's obviously not a size limitation or anything because the client files are bigger than the server files.


I'm currently having some network issues since I got home so I'm going to try to resolve those and try this again tomorrow (Friday) and see if maybe it's network-related. I could try transferring over the files across the LAN, I just really want to know what the problem here is for future reference. Thanks again guys!

That log agrees with me - @Emerson, do you resolve to the same host/IP address ?.

Using wget with the IP in the photo gives a small file. Using the link on the download page via http gives a valid zip file. It's not a Linux problem, it's a problem with the web server, AFAICT. Just use the http link and be done with it.
