It's not a tar file, so it's not surprising tar didn't do anything
with it.

Basically, I don't think you meant to dowload that package file.
That's a debian package file for an ARM processor -- from your
question, it's strikes me as very unlikely that you're running either
debian or ARM (people doing that have already fought their way to a
point where they generally know the answer to your question before
they ever think about downloading extra packages).

But, if you are running a debian-derived distribution (debian, ubuntu,
knoppix, etc) on an ARM processor, you can install the package with

dpkg --install libsqliteodbc_0.70-3_arm.deb

If you're running debian (ubuntu, etc) on some other architecture
(like i386), you can download and install the right package with

apt-get install libsqliteodbc

If you're not running debian (the other major family of distributions
is redhat-derived: fedora, rhel, suse, etc), you need to get an
appropriate package for that distribution and install using their
tools.

man dpkg
man deb

Note that both of these might be unavailable unless you are on a
Debian[-derived] system.
