Problem with Base64

So im following IPPSecs walkthrough for irked and he gets to a point where he finds a file, base64 encodes it and then pastes into a vi file on his kali machine and then base64 decodes it to find out how it runs.

I have followed his steps and vi the file on my kali but then when I try to base64 -d it I get the error base64: invalid input.
I have tried googling it and can't find an explanation.

Is there something else I could do instead of base64?

TIA

Don't forget to +respect if I have helped you out at all.

Happy Hacking!
