sudo tar -zxvf quarto.tar.gz fails


I am trying to install quatro on my ubuntu 20 server., using the steps given here:

Have successfully managed to received the tar file but the step to uncompress it seems to give the following error:

$  sudo tar -zxvf quarto.tar.gz     -C "/opt/quarto/${QUARTO_VERSION}"     --strip-components=1

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Here is the ls output of the directory where the tar file is downloaded:

$ ls -l
total 75672
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 77484046 Feb  8 16:03 quarto.tar.gz

What's going wrong?

Which Quarto version you have downloaded?
