Lutris won't launch anymore - Fixed, see "Edit 2"

Hello,

suddenly Lutris do not launch, it hangs on the window where it says “Lutris is starting”, the funny thing is when I close this window Lutris opens.

I am on the latest Arch Kernel 5.14.12-arch1-1 and GNOME 40.4 and lutris 0.5.8.4-1

//Edit: Installed python-magic but this did nothing then I have seen that the folder Ubuntu-18.04-i686 is not available locally but a .tar.xz exists, tried to extract it but it results in this error: Lzma library error: Corrupted input data

Edit 2// Okay, after extracting the Ubuntu file .local/share/lutris/runtime/Ubuntu-18.04-i686.tar.xz manually the “Lutris is starting” window loads normally and Lutris starts. This fixed it.

This is what lutris -d is telling me:
