comment unzip error “End-of-central-directory signature not found”
It seems that "unzip" is not very robust and therefore cannot cope with corrupted (or incompletely downloaded) archives.

I found that the "fastjar" program works as well. It does not require Sun's openjdk. It can be installed from the Ubuntu package "fastjar".

It seems that sometimes the laptop's firmware or BIOS (?) gets into a bad state. Flashing the BIOS gets rid of that state, but so does disconnecting the battery.
