Details needed. RAR is a plugin, see package information https://packages.ubuntu.com/focal/engrampa .

What do you have for

apt-cache policy rar unrar unrar-free p7zip-rar
```

So your system misses RAR packages which marked as Suggests for Engrampa. Install them by

```
sudo apt-get install rar p7zip-rar
```

and retry.

Thank you for responding. Installed p7zip-rar. Had previously installed rar
but installed it again.

Engrampa now can open an .rar file. Am not looking to see if I have a .7zip
file to try.

Again, thank you for responding! (You are the 5th to do so in 3 years!)
