Error unzipping file (This may be due to a large zip file): invalid block type

Check the file ownership - that can cause a spurious block error.

Ok, can you try unzipping the file manually to see what errors happen on a command line?

This is the error that I get >

Archive: Confluence-space-export-173007-1768.xml.zip
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.
note: Confluence-space-export-173007-1768.xml.zip may be a plain executable, not an archive
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of Confluence-space-export-173007-1768.xml.zip or
Confluence-space-export-173007-1768.xml.zip.zip, and cannot find Confluence-space-export-173007-1768.xml.zip.ZIP, period.

The ownership of the file is same with which the application runs.
