    Not seen this specific error, but perhaps you are using aliases which are interfering with the Spectrum installer? What shell are you using?

    bin/bash , the default redhat one.

    The error is that the file should decompress itself, not show any manual page, seems that the decompress line that its encoded is uncorrectly set, i use this package in another servers and works fine, but not in this one, i´ve check al libraries and seems to be good, but  in this one

    It´s the first time that i saw this error in the upgrades.

    We have seen this error where the software was corrupted during the copy and have a problem with the checksums. Can you try to copy the exe again from a working box and then try it out?

    The issue was the /tmp folder thats full, but the instalation don´t show the error .

    Solved redirecting the temporal folder of the instalation user.
