Yesterday there were 9 system upgrades in the AppCenter. I upgraded, but org.gnome.Platform Flatpak runtime was still listed. I tried again, and it remains there waiting for upgrade. Also might maybe be relevant to mention: since some days after I press the upgrade button it starts immediately to fill the blue bar (downloading, installing etc) WITHOUT ASKING for the authentication, as usually. After that it does NOT crash, as it did some time ago, but it also does NOT update. Flatpak runtime remains there, AppCenter remains open, update button is visible.

Today I tried the solution suggested on the chosen answer of this thread and here's the terminal output:

UPDATE (March 17, 2020): It's getting worse. Today there were several system components to update, plus the above mentioned gnome Platform, plus two new gnome Platform.Locale. After installing most of them, the AppCenter crashed. I started it again, tried to update again, it updated one library (don't recall the name) and crashed again. screenshot before the last update Tried it yet again, and the two.Locale updated, this time without crashing, but the old one is still there and the update button is gone. After closing the AppCenter and opening it again, the button is back but 1) it doesn't ask for the password before start 'updating' and 2) doesn't change a thing, file is still listed in there. org.gnome.Platform runtime remains
