This tells you the error: that zip file is not a recognized archive
type.  Strange, but maybe googling for that error points you

Some ideas:

I would say: remove that zip file and run bin/buildout again to see if
that fixes it.  Or first check if that file is empty: the download may
have failed initially.  Maybe download it manually, and check if you
can manually unzip it to see if the download was successfull.
