Ubuntu: Unable to extract .tar.xz files


I am new to Linux and I am trying to install AMD drivers on my system. For this I downloaded the file from AMD website. It is called amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz. In the website it says that I have to extract the file using the following command

tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-17.30-450654.tar.xz  

But when I do this, I am getting the following error.

username@Lenovo:~/Downloads$ tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz  xz: (stdin): File format not recognized  tar: Child returned status 1  tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now  

How can I install extract it? What is the cause of this error?


xz-utils can extract xz compressed files

Install it with the following command:

sudo apt install xz-utils -y

Then use it as below to extract your file:

xz -d amdgpu-pro-17.30-450654.tar.xz
