I just downloaded the file you chose.
First sanity check: is the property file present? Yes.
$ jar -ft /tmp/readonlyrest-1.16.14_es5.1.1.zip |grep prop
Second sanity check: does it contain the right stuff? Yes.
$ unzip -c /tmp/readonlyrest-1.16.14_es5.1.1.zip elasticsearch/plugin-descriptor.properties

I also tried to install it:
$ bin/elasticsearch-plugin install file:///tmp/readonlyrest-1.16.14_es5.1.1.zip
And everything worked well.
So I have two questions
- What’s the sha1 sum of your zip file? I got this:
$ shasum /tmp/readonlyrest-1.16.14_es5.1.1.zip
- What commands are you using to install it?
