The following worked for me:

tar xzf latest.tar.gz

> ls
latest.tar.gz wordpress

For fetching and extracting in one command use:

fetch https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz && tar xzf latest.tar.gz

EDIT: I tried using xvzf and it worked with verbose output. Confirm that the checksum matches and the download is not corrupted.

shasum latest.tar.gz

shasum -a 256 latest.tar.gz
