The tarball isn't supposed to contain anything other than the DB XML
files. Indeed the way it is created is by running osinfo-db-export
on the installed database directory, so it won't pick up anything
other than the files in that dir, so no license file will be found

You are *not* supposed to unpack the tarball manually. Run the
osinfo-db-import tool, passing it the tarball, as described at
