Bug in Muon Package Manager (muon) in 20.04

Paul Loughman
Kubuntu 20.04 (installed when it was still Alpha and upgraded (sudo apt full-upgrade) daily)
KDE Plasma Version: 5.18.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.68.0
Qt Version: 5.12.8
Kernel Version: 5.4.0-21-generic
OS Type: 64-bit

Muon Package Manager (muon): 5.8.0

I was not able to get to the Software Sources page (Settings > Configure Software Sources). After entering my pwd, it updates the package caches and returns me to the main screen. I'm not taken to the expected page.

I resolved this issue by installing ubuntu-drivers-common (sudo apt install ubuntu-drivers-common). I came to this ‘fix’ as a result of running software-properties-kde in a konsole. That returned:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/software-properties-kde", line 38, in <module>
from softwareproperties.qt.SoftwarePropertiesQt import SoftwarePropertiesQt
File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/qt/SoftwarePropertiesQt.py", line 56, in <module>
from UbuntuDrivers import detect
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘UbuntuDrivers'

Before installing ubuntu-drivers-common from a konsole, I searched Muon Package Manager for ubuntu-drivers. It showed that ubuntu-drivers-common was not installed.

It seems that ubuntu-drivers-common is a required dependency for muon, but it’s packaging information doesn’t identify it as such, or was so in my use case.

Paul, this sounds like a packaging bug, so please `ubuntu-bug muon` in the commandline and put what you've got below in the bug report. You can mention in the title or description that a required dependency has not been declared.

Thanks!

Valorie

Muon does depend on software-properties-qt. You should be able to run
software-properties-qt standalone, without Muon, the dependency is
missing there.
software-properties-kde is just a symlink to software-properties-qt,
since it was renamed.
Please, file the bug against software-properties.
