Ask questionsCorrupt ZIP: end of central directory record signature not found

Issue Type: <b>Bug</b>

I tried to install the prettier extension Prettier and it fails. When I try to install it manually from the vsix, this error pops up

Corrupt ZIP: end of central directory record signature not found

The same error shows up with the angular language extension.

@sandy081 I have keep vscode updated, I think this is fixed, I am not really sure, at least I could install the extensions that where causing the errors, but I haven't installed any new ones. I'm going to close this because the problem hasn't happened again.
