Unexpected error: malformed utf8

Hey,
Following the documentation, at this step :

aptos genesis generate-genesis --local-repository-dir ~/$WORKSPACE --output-dir ~/$WORKSPACE

I get :

{
  "Error": "Unexpected error: malformed utf8"
}

Any idea ?

hey, please try

sudo wget -qO genesis.blob https://github.com/aptos-labs/aptos-ait3/raw/main/genesis.blob
sudo wget -qO waypoint.txt https://raw.githubusercontent.com/aptos-labs/aptos-ait3/main/waypoint.txt

sudo wget —> to the moon
