I've got a 20GB RAR file to extract with a password on Debian Linux Google Cloud VM.
I first tried
sudo apt-get install unrar but the following output was given:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package unrar is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package 'unrar' has no installation candidate
I found that this is likely to be because I don't have the multiverse activated, so I tried
sudo add-apt-repository multiverse. This didn't work:
Error: 'multiverse' invalid
I eventually found a post saying that 'unrar free' could be installed. I installed it, and ran
unrar-free -x -p Filename.rar. It is currently going through each file in the archive and giving the following output:
Extracting Folder_name/image/0/1.jpg Failed
Extracting Folder_name/image/0/10.jpg Failed
Extracting Folder_name/image/0/100.jpg Failed
Extracting Folder_name/image/0/1000.bmp Failed
Apparently unrar-free is unable to extract archives in the RAR 3.0 format. I don't know how to tell which version of RAR this archive was compressed in.
How can I extract this RAR file?
I don't mind paying some money if it means faster extraction - I've got 140GB of RAR files to get through.
