I'm trying to download PubMed Central Open Access articles from ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pub/pmc/oa_bulk. However, I am not able to decompress the archives without errors.
tar always gives me the error:
gzip: data stream error tar: Unexpected EOF in archive tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Does PubMed provide corrupted archives or does downloading corrupt the archive?
