Installing Android Support through UnityHub

    While installing Unity with UnityHub I checked the android support checkbox. Everything finished correctly but still I see the "no android module loaded" message in build settings. If I try to redownload a checked greyed out checkbox is shown with the Android support option, so I cannot uncheck/recheck it. Also I have uninstalled the editor and reinstalled it without success.

    If I click the "Open download page" link I get an error:
    <Code>AccessDenied</Code>


    The problem is that UnityHub is extracting Android Module related files directly to
    $HOME
    instead of
    "{UNITY_PATH}/Editor/Data/PlaybackEngines/AndroidPlayer"


    So I manually moved all those folders and files to the correct path (see above) and restarted Unity and this time I can switch platform correctly.

    Involved folders and files:
    Code (csharp):
    1. Apk
    2. Data
    3. Source
    4. Tools
    5. Variations
    6. Whitelists
    7. ivy.xml
    8. modules.asset
    9. UnityEditor.Android.Extensions.dll

    Found the clue while examining this file: https://public-cdn.cloud.unity3d.com/hub/prod/releases-linux.json

    You need to install `p7zip` or `pz7ip-full` package. Only the `*-full` package worked for me. I'm on pop_os 18.10

    I'm getting this too. I've filed a bug report, but if you feel like it please file one of your own. Thanks!

    Please, also add a dialog box asking to install archivers, if not present!
