Looks like the problem lies with the upload, did you try to extract the files from a just created zip file, before you upload it?

WINZIP Is My Favorite Program For Creating ZIP Files.

How To Avoid Problems I Had With WINZIP:

A - Always Use Stable Program Versions - I Once Used A Beta Downloaded Version And It Generated Corrupted Files,

B - Always Use Legacy Compression - It Will Take More Space But It Will Be Backwards Compatible With Older Software.

Cheers.

Given below is a step by step method to repair ZIP files using inbuilt utility available in a WinRAR application or another variants I would suggest you only in case the guide can't help you, you may see it below, last one is the most powerful, but not for all cases

•   Start WinRAR application.
•   Go to file menu and click open.
•   Through the find archive window, select the corrupted ZIP file available in your local machine.
•   Click to open.
