This sounds like a bad download. Please try re-downloading the backup archive using FTP in Binary transfer mode as detailed in our User's Guide, our Quick Start Guide and our third video tutorial. If this doesn't work please specify all the mandatory information you forgot to fill in when submitting the ticket so that I have enough context to help you.
