I tried downloading the zip file but I couldn't find any binary or install file.

Is it available via apt or can we access the latest .deb file somehow?

It would help to know on which Ubuntu version you are trying to install it. – Octavian Damiean Oct 3 '11 at 10:30

The .tar.gz file (not .zip) downloaded from their website (you did try downloading Linux version, didn't you?) contains a file called starter which is a shell script.

I have a strong suspicion this file can be used to start Spark 2.6.3
