Unreal5.0.3.1.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory

Post by kdmiller45 » Wed Feb 26, 2020 4:10 am

I have been trying to uncompresss Unreal5.0.3.1.tar.gz: using the command given
tar -xvzf Unreal5.0.3.1.tar.gz

and I get this error:
root@aztalker:~# tar -xvzf Unreal5.0.3.1.tar.gz
tar (child): Unreal5.0.3.1.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I have tried this as ircd sudo user and as root both yield same error

Installing on Ubuntu on 18.04

Why do you look for a file named "Unreal5.0.3.1.tar.gz"? The official download is named "unrealircd-5.0.3.1.tar.gz".
Have you ever used a "ls" command?

The simplest answer is, that is the name shown in the ircd directory that was obtained by performing wget

and yes I do know how to use the ls command

help is truly appreciated sarcasm is not

Well first of all, you seem to be trying to install it as root which will only mess up permissions down the road. See also this wiki page. Remove the tar file, set up a dedicated system user for Unreal and redownload/install it under that user account. You should also never need to use sudo with that user.

Second, if you download Unreal through the official download page, the filename is unrealircd-5.0.3.1.tar.gz. Wget doesn't rename files on its own, except if there's an already existent file with the exact same name in the directory you're downloading to and you're simply doing wget <url>. So you either didn't cd to the proper directory before unpacking or you didn't actually download the file (e.g. due to an error). Seeing as how you're running the `tar` command from root's home directory, but you've downloaded the tar file to the ircd user's, the problem seems to be "you didn't cd to the proper directory". ;]

I could not resist in letting a PEBCAK case being dismissed by claims of sarcasm to point out that people helping are not actually helping. :roll:

@kdmiller45, in your vast wisdom and knowledge, can you explain us all how is it that you download unrealircd-5.0.3.1 and then try to extract unrealircd-5.0.X which, has never been downloaded to your filesystem, but you expect to exist in your filesystem?

How is it exactly that when Linux tells you that a file does not exist with the message Cannot open: No such file or directory you still insist and or expect it's existence and completely ignore the very clear message?

We can clearly see that the file does not exist and you never downloaded it. What do you want us to do?

Would it be possible to have you reading a few words, or would you like us to download the file to your system and proceed with the extraction?
