Avogadro not running on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

I’ve recently updated my system from Ubuntu 19.10 to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I think in the process Avogadro was automatically updated to Avogadro 2 (?). However, it wouldn’t run, so I’ve reinstalled it by apt. But it still won’t run.

Environment Information

Avogadro version: Avogadro 2
Operating system and version: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
Open Babel version: 3.0.0

Expected Behavior

Avogadro runs.

Actual Behavior

Black window pops up and then there is an error message:
