Hi,

For a short while now, I've been getting the "The Archive file is corrupted, truncated or archive parts are missing." error when trying to upgrade Joomla 3 to 3.x. Same thing for the language packs. This is through the Joomla upgrade interface.

This is common on all of our servers ?

Any thoughts
Danny

Hi iDanny,

This problem happend to me and I managed to fix it.

1) Check whether /tmp directory is available or not in your website file server.
2) Set the /tmp directory in Global Configuration > Server. Make sure it is correct.

Hopefully this little tips helps you :)

I got this error but the tmp folder is there. If I look at the folder I can see the Joomla_3.2.2-Stable-Update_Package.zip file. Once I clicked okay on the error I now have Updating your Joomla! files. Please wait ... but the progress bar is not moving???

Any ideas

For me, I actually had to clear out the tmp folder - there were some old files sitting there and this cured. Thanks for this thread.

I saw that the file hadn't actually fully downloaded to the tmp file so I downloaded the package and installed via the extension manager. The install worked, as in the site is now Joomla3, but none of the menu items work , which is a whole other issue!

Hi, just to confirm. I had the same issue with the 3.2.2 update. FTP into your site, bin the contents of the tmp folder and I suggest log out on the admin side of Joomla, log back in, attempt the update and all should work.

Just tested this on a live site and it now works. The error occurred after a weird "timeout" with the update process which probably corrupted the files in some unexpected way.
