The -k options is probably from another implementation, it shuld be safe to 
skip it.

The file is most certainly not in GZIP format, often ASCII transfer is used for 
SFTP instead of binary
which should have been used. ASCII mode for transfer changes line ending 
characters invalidating the
file data, so please check if you have selected binary transfer.
