Is the file you are making available for download a .tar.gz file, by
chance?  Some browsers will save the .tar.gz files with a .tar
extension, but without having unzipped it.  This creates confusion.

But without knowing what you did (how you downloaded, renamed from
what to what, ran it), I can only just guess.
