Of course.  That is what we are talking about.  It doesn't render the
orignal  png file so the server can't created through imagemagik the
file images that are resized.  I tried to make this understandable in the original post.
If I failed, I'd be happy to try to explain it again.  But the server
can not produce images from png files because they are failing to be
rendered, and neither can the GIMP on the desktop. returns a 2K  file with HTML contents, 
even if it is named "ornimental_building_kent_st_2006_00557.png". So of course it isn't a valid image file 
for image editors

That is not an image.  It IS an HTML file.  (your eyes are not playing
tricks on you).  That is not the file being opened by the program.
It is the html generated by the program that normally contains an image
generated by the server generated from an original. is correct.

So IMHO before you cast doubts on the PNG format or Gimp, better
check that your server is fully functional.
The server has been fully function since 1998.

Maybe you can right click on the PNG file and try to open it with the
gimp and see if it renders on GNU/Linux.

Then, to eliminate all other hypotheses:

1. post  the initial image outside of your server (Dropbox or else..., **not** an image server, that could recompresss it). MD5 or SHA checksum also a good option.

2. describe exactly how you save it to PNG in Gimp or what you do to it with ImageMagick (with actual software versions used)

3. post the image you obtain on the same server as 1) so that we can check we obtain the same thing.

Now, about your server being fully functional since 1998... Since you complain about recent version of software, I assume you have been doing software upgrades, and not only on imaging software, and maybe even move the server to new hardware a couple of times.... These could have introduced problems as well...
