Then it probably is not a gedcom file. It is some type of file that is compressed and needs to be unzipped. Where did you download it from?

Downloaded from GEDcom.

Before trying to upload to Wiki, there was a warning that opening zipped files beforehand could possibly corrupt the file.
You must have downloaded the gedcom from another website or from a genealogy software. Which one was it, that could make a difference?
It was downloaded from Gedcom.
I do not know of any website or genealogy software called "Gedcom." Do you mean Gedmatch?
Yes, Gedmatch, and I've followed all the instructions on Gedmatch and WikiTree.

Ok, mystery solved! You have already entered your DNA test information on your profile. That is all you need to do. WikiTree does not accept the raw DNA data in your test file.
