"Blender could not convert the .blend file to FBX file" error is thrown when .blend file is imported and Blender 3.0.0 is the default version for opening .blend files

How to reproduce:
1. Ensure that Blender is not installed
2. Install and run Blender 2.93 (https://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.93/)
3. Save the file (File > Save As) and close Blender
4. Create a new Unity project
5. Import the saved .blend file into the project
6. Install and run Blender 3.0.0 (https://www.blender.org/download/)
7. Open the saved .blend file and ensure it was opened with Blender 3.0.0 (Blender logo in the top-left toolbar > About Blender)
8. In the Unity project's Project window, right-click the .blend file and select "Reimport"
9. Inspect the Console window (Window > General > Console)

Expected result: No errors are seen in the Console
Actual result: "Blender could not convert the .blend file to FBX file. " error is seen in the Console

Reproducible with: 2019.4.34f1, 2020.3.26f1, 2021.2.8f1, 2022.1.0b4, 2022.2.0a2

Full error:
Blender could not convert the .blend file to FBX file.
You need to use Blender 2.45-2.49 or 2.58 and later versions for direct Blender import to work.
