[Ubuntu 16.04] Can not extract amdgpu-pro archive

I'm running Linux Mint 18 (ubuntu based), I have a Radeon RX 480 and I want to install the AMD driver.

I found this page : How-To Install/Uninstall AMD Radeon™ Software AMDGPU-PRO Driver for Linux® on an Ubuntu System

I followed instructions and downloaded the ubuntu 16.04 driver archive, but here is the tar output :


tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro_16.30.3-315407.tar.xz

xz: (stdin): File format not recognized

tar: Child returned status 1

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now


It looks like the archive is broken.

I have downloaded again several times, with the same result when trying to extract it with tar.


Could you fix the archive, please ?
