It appears that you are using Kali Linux, which is not appropriate for general use, and you will find a million and a half other little weirdnesses like this, because running everything as root is explicitly unsupported and never recommended. I would encourage you to re-install your system with a more appropriate general purpose Linux distro, such as one of the ones you can see at https://kde.org/distributions.

Additionally, Plasma 5.21.5 is no longer supported. Please upgrade to 5.22 or 5.23.

Good afternoon dear Nate Graham.
I have been using kali linux as a desktop in general for quite some time I even have installed on my desktop computer for more than 2 years, I have installed kali linux with kde-plasma-desktop since version 2020.1 but when I download iso 2021.3 and try to install it in my laptop does not allow me to use kde-plasma but if I can use it with gnome or xfce or any other environment, in a few words I install version 2021.3 and the kde-plasma-desktop works wonders for kali linux but when entering the command to update completely to the latest version of everything: command: "apt-get update && apt-get -y full-upgrade" only the kde-plasma desktop is going to shit. And I can't find the reason why
