When I download this file: VuzeInstaller.tar.bz2 (version date 2016-11-21, size 35,286,875)
from here:
(which is auto-sensing the OS as linux, using ubuntu 16.04)
the tar file appears to be corrupted....

1. The use of an archive manager (such xarchiver or archive manager) fails with undisclosed errors.

2. Doing this (as root) is ok: # bzip2 -dk VuzeInstaller.tar.bz2
(producing VuzeInstaller.tar, size 48,558,080)

3. But doing this: # tar -xvf VuzeInstaller.tar
produces loads of errors....

tar: vuze/azureus: Cannot open: Not a directory
tar: vuze/updateAzureus: Cannot open: Not a directory
tar: vuze/vuze: Cannot open: Not a directory
...... etc

4. tar -tvf VuzeInstaller.tar
-rwxr-xr-x 0/0            6521 2016-11-21 18:28 vuze/azureus
-rwxr-xr-x 0/0             106 2010-04-09 08:55 vuze/updateAzureus
-rwxr-xr-x 0/0            6521 2016-11-21 18:28 vuze/vuze
drwxr-xr-x 0/0               0 2016-11-21 22:21 vuze/swt/
-rw-r--r-- 0/0             456 2010-04-09 08:55 vuze/README.txt
-rw-r--r-- 0/0           73723 2010-04-09 08:55 vuze/TOS.txt
... etc
so the tar file catalogue is intact.

I am an old hand at using Vuze and I have had it running happily on this machine under Mageia 5 before I removed Mageia and did a clean install of Ubuntu (for other reasons). 

# apt-get install vuze 
doesnt find an installable :(

Any ideas?
