Attempts to install some apps (Thunderbird in these examples) from the AppCenter fail with:

Aborted due to failure (While trying to checkout 7898e3822e6f10310c8f2b6ae8aa630ed102eb1e3341c7e57e0aa9757987d2ea into /home/mg/.local/share/flatpak/runtime/org.freedesktop.Platform/x86_64/20.08/.7898e3822e6f10310c8f2b6ae8aa630ed102eb1e3341c7e57e0aa9757987d2ea-7UOQA1: Opening content object f5177de959293d7382c1995623c8ef3a389e90e48c801a2c4ef4d1ff74e1b0c3: Couldn't find file object 'f5177de959293d7382c1995623c8ef3a389e90e48c801a2c4ef4d1ff74e1b0c3')

There's a similar error when attempting to install from flathub.org:

Krita also fails while Desktopius is successful. I'm left with installing (often old versions) from Synaptic.

Generally when this happens there's an error with the user profile in Flatpak. You can fix it via the Terminal like this:

flatpak repair --user

This will regenerate the necessary files and directories. From there you should be able to install software properly 👍🏻

Ran the command, 'flatpak repair --user' with no change, either before or after logging out and back in.

In the meantime, I investigated further and found that attempting to install from flathub has the same result.

Another Flatpak issue I'm having is that it's not updating correctly. When I run the updates to the system, they're all installed except:

The Flatpak runtime hasn't updated for months, maybe since the initial installation last summer.

Suggestions are appreciated. For now, Synaptic and snaps are keeping me going but I'd like to have the homegrown solution working.
