The file extension is tar.gz, which means it is a gzipped tar archive. I
don't know what yocto is, but I just downloaded the URL givne by you, and
got indeed a gzipped tar archive.

As far as I can see, there is nothing that would qualify as "double
gzip-envelope" about the archive.

Maybe you should describe what you are trying to do and what the steps are
that you are doing, then maybe it becomes clearer what goes wrong for you.
