Invalid role error message is not descriptive if you were trying to add grants

      Description

      Hi,

      When trying to add grants (GRANT SUPER ON *.*) but forgetting the *.* I get an error about invalid roles:

      MariaDB [mysql]> grant super to 'user'@'host';
      ERROR 1959 (OP000): Invalid role specification `super`.
      

      This is not very descriptive. In my opinion, this would be better:

      ERROR 1959 (OP000): Invalid role specification `super`. Perhaps you meant to grant a permission ON database.table or *.*?
