I was going to post this as a reply, but all the threads where people had this problem had been archived.

My friend was working on a Keynote presentation literally for months. Hours ago he was showing it to me and his Mac crashed for no reason. When it restarted, his presentation wouldn't open. Keynote gave a message that the file was damaged.

My friend almost had a nervous breakdown. Seriously.

I searched all the forums, but found nothing. Then I made a test Keynote presentation and noticed this: the index file should be called index.apxl.gz. His was called index-temp.apxl.gz.

I renamed it and the presentation opened as normal.

So, control-click or right-click on the package name and select Show Package Contents. If the index file has the wrong name, change it.

Hope that helps just one person from having a breakdown.
