Bunzip2 v 1.0.6

>bunzip2 enwiki-20151201-pages-articles.xml.bz2

bunzip2: I/O or other error, bailing out. Possible reason follows. bunzip2: Permission denied

       Input file = enwiki-20151201-pages-articles.xml.bz2, output file = enwiki-20151201-pages-articles.xml

bunzip2: Deleting output file enwiki-20151201-pages-articles.xml, if it exists.

Any better tool?
