Ask questionsxcode installation fails on using archive utility

When running xcversion install command on machine without GUI service running, the Archive Utility fails with the following error:

_RegisterApplication(), FAILED TO establish the default connection to the WindowServer, _CGSDefaultConnection() is NULL.
2019-05-02 11:26:54.842 Archive Utility[3338:14365] +[NSXPCSharedListener endpointForReply:withListenerName:]: an error occurred while attempting to obtain endpoint for listener 'ClientCallsAuxiliary': Connection interrupted

Alternative way to extract .xip is to use xip -x command.

What I ended up doing is using xcversion install <version> --no-install and then use xip -x Xcode_<version>.xip and that worked.

May be xcode-install should use xip -x instead of archive utility ? if it makes sense I can make a PR should be pretty simple
