You are either using the wrong archive (it is ZOP archive, not TAR... download TAR from your source), or you are using the wrong archive handler (tar instead of unzip).

Try unzip ogg112101_fbo_ggs_Linux_x86_ora11g_32bit.zip and see, what's inside with
ls -al
It might be .tar is inside ZIP archive.

tar -xvf is used to open TAR archives and GUNZIP/UNZIP of ZIP archives

Try do determine the file type using:

file ogg112101_fbo_ggs_Linux_x86_ora11g_32bit.zip

It will most likely tell you it is a .zip file, unzip it first using unzip

Sorry, but didn't I told you just that? To do:

unzip ogg112101_fbo_ggs_Linux_x86_ora11g_32bit.zip

first, then use TAR command?

I am glad we helped you, and I do not want to dramatize, but next time you should spread the points in a bit more fair manner ;)
