Help installing the "command-not-found" package

Guys, when using Ubuntu, there was a package that suggested to install a program that is not installed similar to the package that was about to be installed, in case you did not find the package you typed. Example: I suppose you want to install the “htop” package but I made a mistake …
$ sudo pacman -Syu htol | In that case, he would give a message saying “Command ‘htol’ not found, but you can install htop”.
.
In other cases it suggests installing a package that has not yet been installed, but which is in the repository.

pkgfile includes a “command not found” hook that will automatically search the official repositories, when entering an unrecognized command. You need to source the hook to enable it, for example:

~/.bashrc
source /usr/share/doc/pkgfile/command-not-found.bash

Then attempting to run an unavailable command will show the following info:

$ abiword

abiword may be found in the following packages:
  extra/abiword 3.0.1-2	/usr/bin/abiword

An alternative “command not found” hook is provided by command-not-found (AUR), which looks like this:

$ abiword
The command 'abiword' is provided by the following packages: 
  abiword (2.8.6-7) from extra [ abiword ] 
  abiword (2.8.6-7) from staging [ abiword ] 
  abiword (2.8.6-7) from testing [ abiword ]
