Demux plugin Error while decompressing the file

plugin error from demux:

Error -3 while decompressing data: invalid distance too far back

Debug info has been saved to /tmp/qiime2-q2cli-err-orvhiskg.log

I'm getting this error while decompressing the demux.qza file. How to resolve this error please guide me. Thanks

Hello Zainab,

Welcome to the forums! :qiime2:

I looked up the error, and this appears to happen when a zip file is invalid / has been corrupted.

Can you try downloading your fastq files again and see if the new file works better? Hopefully the new files will be complete and you can continue your analysis.

Ok Thank you so much
