Although if the extension would be .tar it seems at least to me an undesired behaviour. Reason seems a new "wget" feature, here some extracted lines taken from the ChangeLog 2017-08-04 Add gzip Content-Encoding decompression (gethttp): Decompress files with gzip Content-Encoding in combination with the HTTP header the www.musl-libc.org server delivers: Content-Type: application/x-tar Content-Encoding: gzip Solutions/workarounds may be on the server side delivering of a HTTP header like Content-Type: application/x-gzip (or Content-Type: application/octet-stream) or on the client side the use of the new "wget" option --compression=none Regards Jens
