Ubuntu 14.04: Can't install phing

It's really such a headache when I migrated to Ubuntu 14.04. Lots of headaches! But anyway, here we go:

First you need to install pear first by doing the following command on Terminal:

sudo apt-get install php-pear

Then add pear channel:

sudo pear channel-discover pear.phing.info

Install Phing:

sudo pear install -Z phing/phing

The -Z option will download .tar file instead of the damn .tgz (which always throws this error): 

could not extract the package.xml file from "/build/buildd/php5-5.5.9+dfsg/pear-build-download/phing-2.9.1.tgz"

Download of "phing/phing" succeeded, but it is not a valid package archive
Error: cannot download "phing/phing"
Download failed
install failed

Hopefully it works on your end. Please comment below if it worked.
