unsupported archive type error message to include hints to install UNRAR

Bug Description

Binary package hint: file-roller

I tried to open a RAR file and I received an error that just said "unsupported archive type".
I then tried the same are RAR file with "Ark" and I received an error that said "UNRAR missing".
the Ark error missing prompted me to install UNRAR and now both ARK and FILE-ROLLER work.

Please change the error message for "unsupported archive type" to include hints to install UNRAR like ARK does.

Thank you!
I appreciate your contributions to the open source world!
