The previous command was:

tar xvf -C release-media FreeBSD.iso

This order of arguments does not work because tar thinks the file is named -C, which does not exist and reports: tar: Error opening archive: Failed to open '-C'
Changing the command to:

tar -C release-media -xvf FreeBSD.iso
Test Plan

Test out both commands, notice that the first command fails.
