System says my zip file is okay, but I can't extract it through
unzip. I think maybe because it's such a large file (34 GB) that
unzip might not support it.
Is there a way to get this to work?

I think your file download is incomplete. From here it says:
For reference purposes, with the Zip64 extension to the Zip file format enhancement, Zip files of 16 exabytes, which is over 16 billion gigabytes (or 2 to the 64th power bytes) are possible. Likewise, over 4 billion files and folders can be included in a Zip file.
Please check the integrity of your
zip file with:
zip -T name_of_zip_file.zip, an
OK is expected if download was complete. And current Ubuntu 64bit has
zip64 capability already compiled into your
zip tool. Check that with
I just extracted a 13GB file. I was unable to unzip it using the extract tool, right clicking on the file (I'm in KDE, so this is dolphin). I ran into a similar error, where it said that "The archive you're trying to open is corrupt. Some of the files may be missing or damaged.". Instead I used dtrx from the command line, and it worked on the first try.
To install dtrx I typed:
sudo apt-get install dtrx
To run the extraction I typed
dtrx filename.zip with no flags.
say, did you try all the other unpackers which are available ? there is also p7zip, b1 Archiver (snap store) and more..
i have had couple of zips rars and so forth sometime, which did not or did not correctly unpack, in case this happens i simply switch to use another unzipper/unpacker for the file.
(it sometimes helps)
