Unzip: cannot find or open file.zip

When extracting the contents of a corrupted .zip file, unzip will display the error:

"unzip: cannot find or open file.zip, file.zip.zip or file.zip.ZIP."

Before you move the .zip, be sure to run a test on the .zip:

#unzip -t file.zip

If the test fails, recreate the archive with tar or gzip.
