That is the famously unhelpful error message from ZipArchive>>readFrom:
that means, loosely translated: "Something bad happened while trying to
uncompress your MCZ, probably because of a network problem or a corrupt
zip file. But I'm not going to tell you what the problem was, because you
are probably much more interested in googling around to try to figure
out what an EOCD is".
