There are several error messages only mention bytes. But they may also accept string or other bytes-like objects.

"unpack requires a bytes-like object of length %zd" is not correct too. array.array('i', [1, 2, 3]) has length 3, but Struct('3b').unpack doesn't accept it. The more correct error message is "unpack requires an object containing %zd bytes" (or "a buffer"). The similar issue was discussed some time ago, but I don't remember what module was discussed and who participated in that discussion.

FWIW a similar change to the Struct constructor message was also proposed in Issue 19985.
