I am unable to install a program on my droplet

I am attempting to install a program on my droplet. The program has a Linux 64-bit version so I am fairly certain I should be able to download it.

I attempted to download directly from the website using Lynx but was unable to do so successfully, but get an error that says “Alert! Execution is not enabled for this file” and brings me to a screen with unreadable symbols.

Then, I tried downloading directly to my personal computer and uploading to the droplet via SFTP. When trying that, I received an error that said “Couldn’t open local file "fileName” for reading: Permission denied".

Is there a way I can setup permission properly or am I just SOL here?
