Machine Type: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

Bash Version: 5.0
Patch Level: 17
Release Status: release

         When a user attempts to execute an executable that is not recognized as an executable by the system, the generated error is "No such file or directory"

         Obtain an i386 executable instead of an amd64 executable and attempt to run it via ./name_of_executable

         If the file exists but cannot be executed, issue an error message that is not so misleading. The file does exist, so "No such file or directory" seems plain wrong.
