#93 new enhancement

Give clearer error message if input file is corrupt

Description

If Keka is given a corrupted input 7z, the error message reads:

"Extraction of (filename) failed.
Error code 2 using "p7zip"
Fatal error"

This leaves the user guessing as to what the problem might be.

I don't know what problems can cause p7zip to return error code 2, but if corruption is the only one, "Input file is corrupted" would be a much better message.

If there are multiple possible causes for error 2, a list of those potential causes, including "Input file may be corrupted" would be better.
