Hi and welcome here,

Did you try to read it with VLC media player?

If you cannot repair it with several software, I think the better solution is to download it again (or another release).

The commonest reason for this is that the download of the file was corrupted in some way (even though the byte size may appear to be correct). Best solution is to download the file again.
