It is broken (as Juergen wrote) but this is not the right way to verify 
it: your command would fail the same way on any executable file.

The command "md5sum -c" assumes you have a text file (call it MD5FILE) 
with the expected checksums, one per line, like

You then run "md5sum -c MD5FILE" on this file to recompute the checksum 
on the file you downloaded and automatically compare it with the one 
stored in MD5FILE.
