Are you sure that the problem is not specific to that particular file? Have you tried to open other zip format v6.3.3 files with p7zip?

app-arch/unzip may be another program you can try.

Not sure, but have you tried PeaZip?

A bit of googling turned out that app-arch/unzip indeed does not support anything newer than ZIP format v4.6.

With current p7zip (may have to unmask) it should be possible to extract though.

i did try p7zip-9.20.1-r5 and 15.09-r2 on linux both failed to unpack the zip correctly. on windows it worked with p7zip 15.14. i will probably try to get the 15.14 version on linux when i have some time.

15.14 linux version of pkzip does the same. during the unpacking some overwrite messages come and as the end result i do not get the same as with the windows version. i should probably ask at 7zip itself.. unfortunately the zip is 800MB large and could cause problems with sharing.
