Did you check the md5sum's ?

There should be a checksum/md5 in teh directory with each stage from where you downloaded it from.

Download it and download the md5 file.

cat md5_file
md5sum tarball_file
and they should produce identical strings.

(Just to verify the archive you are extracting is correct... as a first step.)
