dialog window error
"Configure software sources" from muon package manager does not work, but it works through Discover package manager.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Muon and software-properties-qt or common already installed in a 18.04 based
2. Upgrade to 20.04, run muon (alt+F2 and type muon)
3. configure software sources
It appears a dialog that says "software-properties-kde" not present. However, it doesn't exist in repositories. Installing from konsole and apt says that package software-properties-kde is (now) obsolete and the replacement is "software-properties-qt". But installing this new package doesn't fix the problem and it persists.

software-properties-kde has indeed been replaced by software-properties-qt.
It has been fixed in Muon after 5.8.0, but a new version is not released yet.
As a workaround you can start software-properties directly from the applications menu or by running
I am closing this based on the comment below.
Sorry, misread the below. I will look into what needs to be done.
Using Muon Package Manager Version 5.8.0 in KDE Neon. Still broken. Adding software-properties-kde is not available in repos. Adding software-properties-qt installs, but does not solve the problem. Additionally, adding qapt-batch, which was suggested in an older thread also did bot help.
It's still there, and my workaround for this problem has been this:
sudo ln -s "software-properties-qt" "software-properties-kde"
Ideally, Muon should be looking for "software-properties-qt" instead of (or in addion to) "software-properties-kde".

works for me on neon unstable.

I can confirm that opening the software sources through Discover works, as does opening "software-properties-qt" through the terminal. But the original issue persists: Without workarounds it's not possible to edit the list of software sources through Muon.

hi, i have the exact same issues with kubuntu 22.04 and also happen when trying to oppen software sources on discover (which is not translated into French, which is strange because I remember that it was the case).
couldn't install wine properly because of this :(
Addind ppa and trusting key via termina is not working even if I am validated as sudo
have a good day

You may like to try my workaround in comment 6: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=425073#c6
PS: In the end, I've decided to replace Muon with Synaptic as my package manager because of things like this.
Hi. Having the same issue after installing a recent update from 20.04 to 22.04LTS
The advise on linking the `software-properties-kde` to `software-properties-qt` didn't help. I'm already having it:
$ ll `which software-properties-kde`
$ /usr/bin/software-properties-kde -> software-properties-qt
In addition to the said above, I'm also experiencing the same issue in Discover application when trying to access `software-properties-qt`. Seems like the issue can be narrowed down to `software-properties-qt` itself.
The fix from [comment 6](https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=425073#c6) seems to work, and I used the following single command to action it:
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/software-properties-qt /usr/bin/software-properties-kde
$ ll /usr/bin/software-properties-*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 Jan 19 09:49 /usr/bin/software-properties-kde -> /usr/bin/software-properties-qt*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6117 Nov 9 14:29 /usr/bin/software-properties-qt*
(Note the full path used in the soft link)
Is this soft link going to cause any issues when the problem is addressed?
Seems to me because it is trying to use `software-properties-kde` when the correct package (in Neon at least) is `software-properties-qt`
Maybe that would fix this?

Sorry, I see this was discussed already, just somehow didn't see the comments at first
