That is because it is not a valid ZIP file. A ZIP file starts always with the two characters PK, sometimes with some (selfextractor) header in front. Your file does nowhere contain the PK identifier for a ZIP file. Also try to open the file in Windows Explorer and you get an error too, and when you open it in 7-ZIP it does recognize it as gzip format, which is a different format than ZIP.  The correct fileending for this file should be .gz. The OpenG ZIP library specifically only can deal with proper ZIP files.
