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software-properties-kde has indeed been replaced by software-properties-qt.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.
