  Errors when extracting ZIP files. It can not differentiate between
  files and directories

Status in libarchive package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in libarchive source package in Bionic:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  * Impact
  The bionic version has a known problem when reading file entries in ZIP 
files, where it incorrectly identifies directories and files entries.

  * Test case
  $ wget
  $ bsdtar -vxf
  $ ls -l

  The 'ABCD_1234' and 'empty' entries should be directories

  * Regression potential
  Check that extracting zips from bsdtar or nautilus work without issue


  It has been confirmed that the previous and following versions
  (3.3.1+) do not have this problem and the library handles the ZIP
  files correctly.

  Is it possible to include a newer version of libarchive (3.3.1+) in

  This problem is seriously affecting some of our systems.
