Repl.it desktop app error

I have downloaded the Repl.it app for GNU/Linux Amd64.
1. Switched to a root shell with su - 2. Navigated to where the .deb file was downloaded to 3. Entered the following

dpkg -i ./replit_1.0.0_amd64.deb
  1. And got the following output dpkg-deb: error: archive './replit_1.0.0_amd64.deb' uses unknown compression for member 'control.tar.zst', giving up dpkg: error processing archive ./replit_1.0.0_amd64.deb (--install): dpkg-deb --control subprocess returned error exit status 2 Errors were encountered while processing: ./replit_1.0.0_amd64.deb

Issue seems to be the compression is using tar.zst, I have no idea what this is either, normally it is .tar.gz

Sharing here in case anyone else has a problem.

Update

Asked on the Replit forum and it seems it may have something to do with my Debian version, see post here
