I am trying to download/copy a file. I tried from web and also from pendrive. md5sum for the two files ( one in pendrive and one that I copied on desktop) are not matching at all. I copied using cp command also. Also even web downloads are corrupted. however, I can perfectly download in windows, but fail miserably in ubuntu 16.04. This happening for every file I am trying to copy.

What has happened?

Edit

Installing any .run file says that there is no enough space on /tmp and that the file may be corrupted.

sudo df -h
[sudo] password for hes: 
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev            968M     0  968M   0% /dev

/dev/sda6       158G   19G  132G  13% /
tmpfs           997M   15M  982M   2% /dev/shm
tmpfs           5.0M  4.0K  5.0M   1% /run/lock
tmpfs           997M     0  997M   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs           200M   56K  200M   1% /run/user/1000

The error:

:~/Desktop$ ./cuda_9.0.176_384.81_linux.run Extraction failed. Ensure there is enough space in /tmp and that the installation package is not corrupt Signal caught, cleaning up

I am still getting same two errors:

:~$ ./cuda_9.2.148_396.37_linux

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated Extraction failed. Ensure there is enough space in /tmp and that the installation package is not corrupt Signal caught, cleaning up

    So where is /tmp located and how much free space is there? Have you tried cleaning up /tmp? – DavidPostill Sep 2 '18 at 8:25

  • @DavidPostill I am getting same errors. yes even after cleaning up – gpuguy Sep 2 '18 at 8:44
  • @DavidPostill as per the screenshot it shows 137 gb free space. Is that correct ? – gpuguy Sep 2 '18 at 8:48
  • So your downloads are corrupt. – DavidPostill Sep 2 '18 at 8:52
