Update mimetype for Debian packages

The mimetype for Debian packages (*.deb) was updated in shared-mime-info
1.4 from application/x-deb to application/vnd.debian.binary-package,
resulting in Ark failing to open this archive type.

This commit also adds an autotest for this mimetype.
FIXED-IN: 16.04.1
