Ubuntu: “Cannot open: No such file or directory” when extracting a tar file



Question:

I am trying to install Apache Cassandra that is a tar.gz file. The following is the output I am getting.

1st instance:

tar -zxvf apache-cassandra-2.0.3-bin.tar.gz  tar (child): apache-cassandra-2.0.3-bin.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory  tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now  tar: Child returned status 2  tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now  

2nd instance:

tar -zxvf apache-cassandra-2.0.3-bin.tar.gz.gitignore  tar (child): apache-cassandra-2.0.3-bin.tar.gz.gitignore: Cannot open: No such file or directory  tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now  tar: Child returned status 2  tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now  

What to do? The files I need to install are in a disk and not copied to the machine. Does that matter?


Solution:1

I don't know why people failed to read the error messages . Reason for your problem is in the error report.

Cannot open: No such file or directory  

cded into the directory on which the apache-cassandra-2.0.3-bin.tar.gz file is located and then run the below command to extract it's content.

tar -zxvf filename.tar.gz   # Replace the filename with your's
