Error installing Magic the Gathering Arena

Hey, I am having an issue installing Magic the Gathering Arena.
While trying to install using the install link, I am met with an error "compressed file has ended before end-of-stream marker was reached. And while trying to install via the command line I get:

Please let me know if I can provide any other information.

I re-installed a couple days ago using this script from bascobug:

MTG Arena Installation for october 4th new release has a good bit of information in it

Thanks for the reply. I am using the version of lutris from github - 0.5.4 - it appears to have some better debugging output.

The issue appears to be with:
.cache/lutris/wine-tkg-unity-4.5-x86_64.tar.xz Compressed file ended before the end-of-stream marker was reached

I tried downloading that file from the following link and was not able to. I got a message about the file being corrupt.

https://lutris.nyc3.cdn.digitaloceanspaces.com/runners/wine/wine-tkg-unity-4.5-x86_64.tar.xz

I tried using the install script from bascobug and was met with this error:
Failed to retrieve wine (tkg-unity-4.1-x86_64) information

am I missing some dependencies?

Thanks.
