Writer file corrupted after unzip / zip

I’m working on a project that will potentially involve unzipping an .odt file, modifying contents.xml and rezipping. First, I’m trying to make sure this will work on a test case but I can’t seem to even unzip and re-zip without corrupting the file.

I’m running LibreOffice under Debian Stretch (9).

I do the following:

Create a test file “test_doc.odt”. Open with Writer, add the contents “12345” and save. File opens fine.

Now I try to unzip the file, and re-zip it without any modification:

donald@IIF-Dev:~/Projects/libre_test$ mkdir test_doc
donald@IIF-Dev:~/Projects/libre_test$ unzip test_doc.odt -d test_doc

-rw-r--r-- 1 donald donald  34K Apr  5 09:42 test_modified.odt

When I try to open the resulting file, LibreOffice tells me “The file ‘test_modified.odt’ is corrupt and therefore cannot be opened.” Repairs do not succeed.

I’m thinking I need to do something with the flags used in zip or unzip, but I can’t figure out what.

Any help would be much appreciated!

I realized my error - I was zipping the parent folder “test_doc”.

cd test_doc
zip -r ../test_doc.odt 

solved the problem. Thanks!
