Hi. My mistake. I had, some time ago, needed to install one package from focal-proposed, and to do this had turned off letting synaptic etc from showing all proposed updates by adding a file in /etc/apt/preference.d. I'd forgotten about this. sudo aptitude -t focal-proposed showed that mutter

Can this get escalated in any way? Surely such a basic operation as cut/copy and paste should be totally reliable, as it has been on all the systems I have used since 1970. A fundamental inability to do what a user requests is critical, in my view. I think I will have to ask people in the IT
