Hi Joel,

  1. Is this a file that was uploaded manually by yourself or one of your team members in the Downloads section of the repo?
    Or is it one of the downloaded files created by Bitbucket, e.g. "Download repository" or the download options for Tags and Branches on that page?

  2. What is the extension of that file?

  3. If you download this file from the Downloads page of our website, do you get the same error when you try to untar it? I'm just trying to understand if the issue occurs only when the file is downloaded with curl and wget, or if it occurs when you manually download it from the website as well.

Kind regards,
