I am new to Ubuntu and after doing some research I still can't figure what I am doing wrong. I am downloading the a package ending in
.tar.gz,then I when I try to use;
tar -xvf matlab_r2011b.tar.gz;
I get the following error,
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format tar: Child returned status 1 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
What am I doing wrong?
