"Cannot find zipfile directory" error while unzipping

In the Installation guide there is a step where you have to unarchive the plugin. But it could happen that the following error will come up to you at that moment:

dimitar@Dimitar:~/redmine-4.1.1-7/apps/redmine/htdocs/plugins$ unzip name_of_the_plugin.zip

Archive:  name_of_the_plugin.zip

  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not

  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the

  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on

  the last disk(s) of this archive.

unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of name_of_the_plugin.zip or

        name_of_the_plugin.zip.zip, and cannot find name_of_the_plugin.zip.ZIP, period.

This complex problem means that actually your zipfile is corrupted most likely because of some problem during the downloading. To fix it, please just delete the corrupted zipfile download it again from your license manager.
