Hi All,

I am trying to install neo4j community version of 3.4.9 tar file (neo4j-community-3.4.9-unix.tar.gz) and I followed the below link for the installation setup,

https://neo4j.com/docs/operations-manual/current/installation/linux/tarball/#unix-console

when I am trying to extract the file and I am getting the below response,

meenagmr9@localhost:~$ tar -zxf neo4j-community-3.4.9-unix.tar.gz

gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

However when I ran the below command to start the neo4j and I am getting the below output response,

meenagmr9@localh:~/neo4j-community-3.4.9/bin$ ./neo4j console

Looks like a broken download. Can you check the file size and SHA/MD5 ?

ls -lh neo4j-community-3.4.9-unix.tar.gz 
-rw-r--r--  1 mh  staff    87M 22 Okt 11:12 neo4j-community-3.4.9-unix.tar.gz

md5 neo4j-community-3.4.9-unix.tar.gz 
MD5 (neo4j-community-3.4.9-unix.tar.gz) = c86bc8a4ea833b195e03dc06dae46dcd
