tar unpack git 2.26

    I downloaded the git 2.26 .bz2 file, used bunzip2 on it and then tried tar -xvf git* and I get this:

    when under uid(0):
    tar: FSUM7147 ././@PaxHeader link to : EDC5129I No such file or directory.
    tar: FSUM7147 ././@PaxHeader link to : EDC5129I No such file or directory.
    tar: FSUM7147 ././@PaxHeader link to : EDC5129I No such file or directory.

    when under my uid:
    tar: FSUM7147 ././@PaxHeader link to : EDC5129I No such file or directory.
    x libexec/git-core/git-remote-testsvn, 15638528 bytes, 30544 tape blocks
    tar: FSUM7171 libexec/git-core/git-remote-testsvn: cannot set uid/gid: EDC5139I Operation not permitted.
    x libexec/git-core/git-mv symbolic link to git
    tar: FSUM7171 libexec/git-core/git-mv: cannot set uid/gid: EDC5139I Operation not permitted.
    x libexec/git-core/git-replace symbolic link to git

    What's the correct way to untar this file?

    I need to install in it's own filesystem (directory) so miniconda isn't the solution.

    Hello Lionel,
    We encourage our customers to use Miniconda for ported tools installation. As part of our free support we provide assistance with Miniconda and ported tools issues encountered during use according to the documentation. In addition to downloading and unpacking packages Miniconda also modifies downloaded files, resolves dependencies and adjusts environment settings. That's why we strongly recommend to use Miniconda as a package manager.
    You can install Miniconda either for single user or many users. The installation process is the same. For single-user need you can install Miniconda in your own filesystem. We will be happy to help you if you have an issue during Miniconda installation.

    Miniconda took up too much disk space - my storage admin had me delete the work zfs i was using for it.  Thus this manual effort.

    So I guess I'm out of luck unless I can negotiate for more disk space.
