Hi,  everyone, I would like to initialize a workspace for vots2023.
However, I continue encountering an error when downloading sequence files as follows:

 Downloading          |█████████████████████████                                                                                                                                    |  16% [41:03<3:35:59]
File is not a zip file

    workspace = Workspace.load(config.workspace)
  File "/home/rvl224/.local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/vot/workspace/", line 143, in load
    return Workspace(directory, **config)

  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/", line 1325, in _RealGetContents
    raise BadZipFile("File is not a zip file")
zipfile.BadZipFile: File is not a zip file

Can someone suggest how to deal with this problem?  
Thanks in advance.
