Actually, this one can be fixed because it's a problem with a .desktop 
file. If you look for krita_magick_import.desktop and 
krita_magick_export.desktop in your <kde>/share/services folder, edit 
these and remove the quotation marks (") from the lines 
X-KDE-Import="..." and X-KDE-Export="...", save them, exit kde, restart, 
and the unknown items should change to the missing file types. You 
should then be able to select PNG directly.
