when I run:
tar -xf cabal-install-184.108.40.206-x86_64-unknown-linux.tar.xz
I get an error :
tar : This does not fook like a tar archive
xz : (stdin) : file format not recognized
tar : Child returned status 1
Since I’m rather new to this I’m not sure where the problem is. It looks like a minor compression format issue. Does anyone have any clues on how to fix it?
What does the command
file cabal-install-220.127.116.11-x86_64-unknown-linux.tar.xz tell you?
I suspect that it may be a HTML error page or similar.
Thanks erikd it was indeed a html error. I mistyped the donloading link… Pretty silly
