Issue downloading/unzipping 2020-02-02 Fungal UNITE database

I am attempting to train a fungal classifier using the most recent UNITE database qiime2 release (version 8.2) found here https://unite.ut.ee/repository.php

When I try to unzip after downloading I get gobbledygook, the only thing in the unzipped file is a text file called, 0138B5D5EA2C77B8C2E5B910202FD3E60A9244FC31084E08DAD63E213A03BBFB

If I download and unzip the version before that (version 8.0 released on 2018-11-18) The correct files are present. including the .fasta files and .txt files and the readme doc etc.

I would like to use the most recent release however I am not sure if there is something I am doing wrong or if there is an error in the file.

I am using Qiime2 version 2019.10 on a Linux machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi @SarahM, sorry to hear you’re running into a problem! I recategorized this to “Other Bioinformatics Tools” - the QIIME 2 team doesn’t develop or curate the UNITE database. If you’re experiencing issues, I suggest you contact the UNITE team. Keep us posted!
