    I found that the latest version was probably renamed.
    If you do a tar tvf Oracle_Developer_Day.ova it shows you that the files inside are actually named differently:

    ~/Documents/Virtual Machines$ tar tvf Oracle_Developer_Day.ova
    -rw------- 0 someone someone 101727 Jun 20 00:58 Oracle DB Developer Day.ovf
    -rw------- 0 someone someone 1064100864 Jun 20 01:09 Oracle DB Developer Day-disk1.vmdk
    -rw------- 0 someone someone 3288371712 Jun 20 01:21 Oracle DB Developer Day-disk2.vmdk

    Rename the file to Oracle DB Developer Day.ova and you should be fine.
    (at least it then worked for me)
