            Bug ID: 256145
           Summary: Corrupted distribution files when installing from
                    Brazil FTP Servers
           Product: Base System
           Version: 13.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New

Hello,

I noticed a strange problem when trying to upgrade my jails to 13.0-RELEASE.
After downloading base.txz from ftp0.bra.freebsd.org, the extraction process is
failing:

Example output:

# fetch
'ftp://ftp0.bra.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/amd64/13.0-RELEASE/base.txz'
# xzdec base.txz | tar --unlink -vxpJf - -C ${BASEDIR}
...
x ./usr/bin/unzstd
x ./usr/bin/kinit
x ./usr/bin/uudecode
x ./usr/bin/sort
x ./usr/bin/slc
x ./usr/bin/primes
x ./usr/bin/tset
x ./usr/bin/fmt
x ./usr/bin/clang-cpp

x ./usr/bin/join
x ./usr/bin/ctags
x ./usr/bin/timeout

x ./usr/bin/ypmatch
x ./usr/bin/strip
x ./usr/bin/lldb: Lzma library error: Corrupted input data
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.


I tried the same process from different hosts but the problem stays the same.
It also happens with 12.2-RELEASE. I forced the download from a mirror located
in the US and it worked without problems. I believe there is some problem with
the Brazilian mirrors.

An important detail is that ftp.freebsd.org points to ftp0.bra.freebsd.org when
downloading from a host in Brazil, so it is difficult to specify another
server, I had to point to a IP address of a foreign mirror to be able to
download the files I needed.
