Can't Install Splunk 6.2 on Amazon EC2 Linux

Explorer

I gave set up a Linux 64 instance on EC2. When I run-

wget -O splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-x8664.tgz 'http://www.splunk.com/page/downloadtrack?file=6.2.0/splunk/linux/splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-x8664.tgz&platform=Linux&architecture=x8664&version=6.2.0&product=splunk&typed=release&name=linux_installer'

I get:

[ec2-user@ip-172-31-41-244 opt]$ sudo su
[root@ip-172-31-41-244 opt]# wget -O splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-x8664.tgz 'http://www.splunk.com/page/downloadtrack?file=6.2.0/splunk/linux/splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-x8664.tgz&platform=Linux&architecture=x8664&version=6.2.0&product=splunk&typed=release&name=linuxinstaller'

I then run

[root@ip-172-31-41-244 opt]# tar xvzf splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-x86
64.tgz

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
[root@ip-172-31-41-244 opt]#

Tried everything I can think of but can't seem to install 6.2.
Please can you help. It is driving me cray!

Hi BrandSentiment,

If I check the wget URL from the download page I get something like this:

wget -O splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-x86_64.tgz 'http://www.splunk.com/page/download_track?file=6.2.0/splunk/linux/splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-x86_64.tgz&ac=test_modal_enterprise&wget=true&name=wget&platform=Linux&architecture=x86_64&version=6.2.0&product=splunk&typed=release'

running a test on this works perfect:

wget -O splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-x86_64.tgz 'http://www.splunk.com/page/download_track?file=6.2.0/splunk/linux/splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-x86_64.tgz&ac=test_modal_enterprise&wget=true&name=wget&platform=Linux&architecture=x86_64&version=6.2.0&product=splunk&typed=release'
