Yes I had similar issue while recent installation, It is due to some version mismatch. I tried to downgrading few dependencies but it didn't worked well and I lost few drivers and software. I was using Ubuntu 20.04.4 but then I shifted to the Ubuntu 20.04.2 it was solved. I am not sure if you are considering the downgrading the system or not but it can be one of the solution.

Hi @rukey3001

Please take a look at prior answer: #q279780 as it offers a couple approaches how to find the problematic dependencies.
