I have run into the same error message trying to set up a couple packages. When I tried to set up M Hinner's alternate web interface, and his vsftpd package (using, for example, wget ftp://ftp.penguin.cz/pub/users/mhi/mybook/vsftpd.tar.gz -q -O - | tar xzvf - -C /), each time I get a response similar to 'wget: fgets(): Success
gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
Child returned status 1
Error exit delayed from previous errors.
This seems to suggest that the file was retrieved properly, but some type of problem was encountered during the tar / uncompress process. Has anyone else overcome this problem and care to share?
