Comment 1 Maxim Monastirsky 2014-05-29 21:01:52 UTC

This file seems corrupted. Here is the output from unzip:

$ unzip -t lofail.xlsx
Archive:  lofail.xlsx
  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 lofail.xlsx or
        lofail.xlsx.zip, and cannot find lofail.xlsx.ZIP, period.

However I was able to repair that file using:
$ zip -FF --out fixed.xlsx lofail.xlsx
