I suggest to keep the specific error message -- I really dislike trying to troubleshoot problems with vague error messages from programs. Concrete specific problems can be addressed and fixed, "there was an error" messages cannot. (Ask yourself how many times you've had to resort to strace to find the cause of a problem that could have been avoided with a simple perror("syscall"); in the code.. same thing here.)

It may make sense to swap the lines, just so that the line closest to the next shell prompt has the advice for 'new users'.
