Synaptic the package manager? Please attach the output from terminal once you launch it.
Also note that synaptic does not have (at least last time I checked) Wayland support nor do I know any effort to port it so it will most likely drop from archive in time.

Yes, the package manager. There was no output from terminal when launched. I needed to determine another package version (Synergy) that was available, but if Synaptic is going to be dropped this ticket could be closed.

As a side note, I am now a happy user of "GNOME Packages", which does work in Wayland.

sudo apt install gnome-packagekit

Unless someone ports it to Wayland we can't actually work on this :-/
