I am following the biostars handbook for the corona genome analysis and I am getting this error about decompressing. Any tips or hints on where I should begin to resolve this?

If the tar files have downloaded then you can do tar -zxvf ... If you still get an error then it is possible that the files have become corrupt. I just tested the NCBI index file and it decompressed fine.

Are you working behind a firewall? Perhaps that is causing the corruption during downloads?

Did you manage to download and decompress all the files from NCBI? The command above needs database index files to be there.

I figured it out, i think. In the handbook I believe they were explaining how they obtained the files when downloaded. When i downloaded and unzipped the corona-virus-project.tar.gz, a "corona" folder popped up and already had the 'db' files and Betacoronavirus files needed. It was a bit unclear, as I thought I had to obtain the file, download and decompress it, when I believe they were just trying to explain how they created this folder with files and where/how they obtained it. thank you for all of your help!
