This bug seems to be present on Kubuntu 16.10 also.

Attempting to open a rar file gives "No suitable plugin found.
Ark does not seem to support this file type."

Ark 16.04.3

dpkg -s shared-mime-info | grep Version
Version: 1.7-1

I have installed rar, unrar, p7zip-rar.  I can extract files from the
command-line but not from Ark.
