Unexpected Error in Dewey Data API Access

I was using Dewey Data API Access Google Colab notebook to access Safegraph Monthly Patterns data and I received the following error while extracting gzip files:

BadGzipFile: Not a gzipped file (b’ye’)

I used the notebook multiple times without making any changes so I was wondering what the problem could be this time.

Hi @mceldir , a couple questions for you:

  1. Is there an example of a file that is resulting in the error?
  2. Is the notebook pulling the same files as previously? Or perhaps a new file is getting pulled now?

It could be a couple of things: corrupt file uploaded, incorrect file format extension, or maybe even a change to one of the packages used in the Colab notebook. If you have any of the above info for me, I will dig into it!

Hello @ryank ,

Thank you so much for your help. It looked like there was a glitch in the system for a few hours and the situation is resolved now without changing anything.
