"Invalid Block Type" exception message

I got "Invalid Block Type" exception message in my program. I'm not sure what this is. Could somebody please advice?

The code is actually fine when I run it in my local machine (windows).
It retrieves the data just fine.
But when I run it in the server (linux), it gives me this exception.

Thanks.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GZIPInputStream gzip_in_stream = null;
BufferedOutputStream destination_out_stream = new BufferedOutputStream(
   new FileOutputStream(weatherFile), BUF_SIZE);
   byte[] input_buffer = new byte[BUF_SIZE];
int byteLength = 0;            
 
InputStream tempStream = ftpClient.retrieveFileStream(zippedFile);
                  
gzip_in_stream = new GZIPInputStream(
new BufferedInputStream(tempStream));

while ( (byteLength = gzip_in_stream.read(input_buffer, 0, BUF_SIZE)) > 0 )
{
destination_out_stream.write(input_buffer, 0, byteLength);      
}
 
destination_out_stream.flush(); // Ensure all the data is written to the output.
destination_out_stream.close();
gzip_in_stream.close();

Try

while ( (byteLength = gzip_in_stream.read(input_buffer, 0, BUF_SIZE)) > -1 )

Make sure the file is not corrupt by running zcat or something against it

I do "zcat [filename]" and then it prints the contents of the file in the console and it doesn't give me any warning or error.
I've never used zcat before. Is this what supposed to happen?

Thanks

Yep. I think you can safely take it that the file's not corrupt from that. No further ideas at the moment although you might check that this is not a known bug

Now it gives me "corrupt gzip trailer" on these lines below.

------------------------------
while ( (byteLength = gzip_in_stream.read(input_buffer, 0, BUF_SIZE)) > 0 )
{System.out.println("** test **");
destination_out_stream.write(input_buffer, 0, byteLength);      
}
------------------------------

It seems that it goes inside the while loop printing the String "** test **" before it gives me the error message "corrupt gzip trailer".

I've also tried using ">-1" instead of ">0".

Also I've tried using zcat again.

Doing these below seem to solve the problem:

ftpClient.setFileType(FTPClient.BINARY_FILE_TYPE);

I will give points for CEHJ for the assistance in finding the answer.
