    Asset 6.6 RPi 4: not in gzip format

    Hi,

    after downloading the premium asset file ver. 6.6 the tar process exits with the message "... not in gzip format ..". Decompressing on Windows was possible.

    Thanks for support - Martin

    Have you tried downloading the Asset tar.gz file to your Raspberry Pi again?
    Can you please post the full command line used to extract the Asset archive as well as the full output?

    Here's the input/output:
    ************************************************** ********
    input:
    wget http://secure.dbpoweramp.com/downloa...num=xxxxxxxxxx -O asset.tar.gz -> then connection established, file downloaded, then
    tar -zxvf *.gz

    output:
    gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

    Thanks for the details.

    It would appear that the download step is failing for some reason.

    I assume that you're trying to download with valid order number in your download link.

    What if you try downloading over https rather than http:
    Code:
    wget https://secure.dbpoweramp.com/downloadorder.aspx?ordernum=123456789 -O asset.tar.gz
    .. then resume original instructions?

    If this doesn't help, please try transferring Asset package file from your computer (one that's verified to extract correctly) to your Raspberry Pi, then extracting it.

    Thanks for help - but nothing changes.

    https brings the same situation -> not in gzip format

    Loading via Windows brings not the same file permissions after decompressing, but it's possible. The comparison with an old version 6.4 offers differences.

    Is this file really in gzip format for Linux?

    Try downloading the file on the PC, then transfer to the NAS and try to unzip

    Ok, done: before unzipping I changed the owner/group and AssetUPnP started correctly

    Thanks
