The command that works for most cases is:

fastq-dump --split-files [SRR ID]

I do not want to split I want to download for example the final 5 reads to check the quality of this data using fastqc

Five reads are not enough for a QC. Download everything and run through fastqc. The split option is important for paired-end data..
