However, in this case, a file with the RPM extension is a Red Hat Package Manager file that is used to store installation packages on Linux operating systems.
RPM files provide an easy way to distribute, install, update, and remove software because the files are "packaged" into one place.
It is important to note that RPM files cannot be used on Windows computers like Linux operating system.
However, since they are just files, any popular compression/decompression program, such as 7-Zip or PeaZip, can open an RPM file to reveal the files it contains.
Commands that invoke Linux Alien software can be used to convert RPM to DEB.

apt-get install alien
alien -d file.rpm
You can replace "-d" with "-i" to convert the package and then immediately start the installation.
