I had a similar problem last night. I ended up running a wget to pull the file down and then it decompressed successfully with a tar -Jxvf. Oddly enough I tried downloading it again after the steps above and that time it worked. No hard evidence to explain why though.
The 17.40 link is still up. If you google “AMDGPU-PRO 17.40” it should be one of the first few results.
Hope this helps!

Just tried with wget and still no luck. I did end up finding a 17.40 link and got openCL working but I would prefer to be on the shiniest newest drivers (running kernel 4.15-rc3 so I have all the latest amdgpu goodness baked into the kernel)

Please can you try with this syntax

This should work
yes it is corrupt, the file is 0 size. They have not fixed it, or they have broken it again.
