Cannot download EMNIST dataset via torchvision dataset using Google Colab

As the topic suggests, I am trying to download the EMNIST dataset using via:

dataset = datasets.EMNIST(root=‘data/’,split=‘letters’, download=True)

However I get the following error: RuntimeError: File not found or corrupted.

Wondering if anyone else has encountered a similar problem.

I tried to download it and put it in the folder /kaggle/input/emnist/EMNIST/raw/gzip
(it try download it to /kaggle/working/data/EMNIST/raw/
but it didn’t work((
Did you manage to find a solution?

Seems to be related to this older issue.
CC @pmeier as I can reproduce it.
