    UPDATE: Installing 7z seems to solve the issue:

    sudo apt install p7zip-full p7zip-rar

    Sorry for the inconvenience. We are working on a solution that does not depend on 7z (or have it bundled with the hub)

    Sounds great! It's not a big problem though once you know the solution. =)

    +1 to this solution. After I installed p7zip-full p7zip-rar I was able to install build support for macOS and windows. It would be nice if Unity Hub could at least check for those libraries and warn the user before trying to install since it seems like they are a hard requirement.

    Ran into this and had 7zip installed, for me it appears cpio wasn't installed, for arch running a quick

    sudo pacman -S cpio


    solved this, perhaps it's installed by default on ubuntu or something

    if anyone else gets this error I suggest just checking the logs (for linux: ~/.config/UnityHub/logs) as it was pretty clear what was wrong, if you have 7zip/cpio and are still getting errors that aren't something like "command not found" it could probably use another thread
