[parsec-users] Error while untaring

Hi Bushra,


The input archives of PARSEC are uncompressed tar files, so trying to use
gzip to decompress them will result in an error. By default PARSEC handles
the input archives correctly, so you probably modified its configuration
files or your environment plays weird tricks.

Subject: [parsec-users] Error while untaring


Hello all,

While untaring the Parsec, we got the following error.


gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Is there any file corrupted and do we have to download again?

Thank you for any help,
