Recently, my Ubuntu 20.04 LTS has been unable to extract any sort of ZIP files, it will always get stuck on "Verifying Destination" on the GUI, see here: GUI of the error
I tried running
nautilus through the command line to see what was going on, and it spits out the following line of codes hundreds of times before inevitably crashing: Terminal output
I've created ZIP files of my own of varying sizes as well as downloading various ones from online; regardless of the contents, size, or creation source, extracting the files simply does not work, and nautilus will crash after a few minutes of idling.
Trying to extract a zip through the command line using
unzip will give the following error: unzip terminal error (note that the files are never extracted)
However, extracting a tar.xz file works fine, and if I simply drag the files out of archine manager and into a folder, the files end up there without a hitch. This is not a huge inconvinience but I'm very curious as to why this happening, and would also appreciate a fix. So far, I've tried restarting my computer, restarting nautilus, removing and reinstalling nautilus, removing and reinstalling ubuntu-desktop, removing and reinstalling unzip.
