Error with zip file when installing Prosper202

I have got the zip of Prosper202 I want to install from the official website and it downloads fine without a problem but when I am trying to unzip the zip file I get the following error:

“End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of or, and cannot find, period.”

The two last commands I run are:

sudo wget


sudo unzip

I would appreciate any help, Many thanks!!

When trying to manually download from that URL, I end up on a web page instead of downloading a file.

When you run wget, if it’s hitting the same page I am, then it’s not actually downloading a file at all which is why you’re seeing that message. When trying to run unzip on a file that isn’t a zip file, it’ll fail.

Hi @demoskp
From what I can see, you can download from this URL

sudo wget
sudo unzip
  • Thank you very much, it worked like a charm.

    Cant thank you enough.
