In trying to recover from an attack earlier today where malicious code was added on top of our index.php file and a suspicious file extension added (eXtplorer), We had a volunteer upload a backup copy of our instillation.

I was advised by our hosting company (Go Daddy) to upgrade our Joomla application from 2.5.11 to 2.5.14 through their back end. That was accomplished successfully.

Now in attempting to upgrade from 2.5.14 to 2.5.5 (per 2.5.27 upload), using the Joomla dashboard/administration/Joomla Update Status, I am getting the following error:
ERROR: The archive file is corrupt, truncated or archive parts are missing

Please advise on the steps I need to take to upgrade to 2.5.5 ( http://joomlacode.org/gf/download/frsre ... ackage.zip ).
Please note I am just now reviewing what we need to do to upgrade to 3.3 prior to the end of the year.
Thank you.

There is no 2.5.5. The file is 2.5.x - 2.5.27. The core system installer will install it.

- push cache from back-end
- download one package upgrade and install via extension manager ( install from directory, not online url)

Thank you for your replies Jackrabbit and jcms. Additional hacks and cleaning up from our multiple hacking incidents has prevented me from getting back to this issue. I hope to try again by Friday to apply your advice to resolve this problem. Your patience and understanding would be appreciated.
