Thanks. This is  a very helpful group.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be

trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking.

Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most

important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow

already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

The supported formats are described in detail here:

In particular, the "file" command reports as "POSIX tar archive" two
formats: ustar and posix.  So try recreating your archive with either
-Hustar or -Hposix option.
