Seems to me you tried to use the program bzip.

Linrad is packed with bzip2 and it has to be unpacked with

The command:
bunzip2 lir01-08.tbz
should create the file lir01-08.tar

When you unpack the tar file like this:
tar xvf lir01-08.tar
you will get a new directory linrad-01.08 like this:
and the new version will be in this new directory.

It is a good idea to copy all the files into your
runtime linrad directory and run linrad there. When
the next version is released, you just copy the files of
linrad-01.09 on top of the files in your run time directory
and type make to have the new version run with your old 
parameters (unless some parameter file format is changed)
