Subject: Unable to crack the password of a test rar file.

As a newbie to this I am trying to get to grips with John and Johnny.

pi@...pberrypi:/var/share/temp/JohnTheRipper-bleeding-jumbo/run $ ./john 
--list=build-info |head -n 1
Version: 2018-05-16 21:26:40 +0200

I made a test rar file using the rar archive facility in raspbian and 
applied it to rar2john. This produced a hash:


which I saved as a txt file. I then applied John and Johnny to this but 
failed to load it.

pi@...pberrypi:/var/share/temp/JohnTheRipper-bleeding-jumbo/run $ john 
No password hashes loaded (see FAQ)

I have perused the FAQ but being very new, I cannot find a way to solve 

I would appreciate a pointer to the way to proceed.
