While installing TeXLive via SSH on a webserver (https://www.a2hosting.com/,
no root access) I get the following error:
- D:unpacking /tmp/JX_bOGH6eg/s6ZbGOLzLd/dvipdfmx.x86_64-linux.tar in
- untar: untarring /tmp/JX_bOGH6eg/s6ZbGOLzLd/dvipdfmx.x86_64-linux.tar
failed (in /home/nxtsolut/etc/tl)
- TLPDB::_install_package: untar failed
- Installation failed.

More details (full verbose log attached):
- Installing TeX Live 2017 from:
http://mirror.utexas.edu/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet (verified)
- Platform: x86_64-linux => 'GNU/Linux on x86_64'
- Distribution: net  (downloading)
- Using URL: http://mirror.utexas.edu/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet

Thanks a lot for any hint. I am totally stuck :-(
Regards, Alo
