So far I have tried the latest stage on two machines from three different repositories and I get failures when de-compressing the archive at the same place every time /sbin/consoletype
Code:

tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors


I haven't seen anything about this on the forums. Has anyone else seen this?

btw. Just to confirm I am using the tar commands reflected in the latest handbook. I also tried omitting the "j" flag as I have had trouble with this flag in the past.

Exactly which stage file are you using?
Might be a corrupt stage file? Using a custom filesystem for your disk?

Option "j" for tar is used for specifying bzip compression, if the wrong compression is used you wouldn't be able to decompress the stage file... If you're using the mini installer image it should work...
