I see one location that actually does set that error:

    if ((st.valid & ZIP_STAT_SIZE) == 0) {
        zip_error_set(error, ZIP_ER_SEEK, EOPNOTSUPP);
        return NULL;

For reading an archive, libzip starts at the end and parses the
EOCD(64) marker and then the central directory. Perhaps the stat() to
find out the filesize failed?

You could read the file from the server into a memory buffer and open
the zip archive from there.
