Cantata Settings not work

Special customisation - sorting of artists and albums
Settings are not adopted
Not even after database update and restart
What could be the reason for this ?

DeepL Translation

inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --width

Looks like cantata latest release was on 2020, I would expect thing getting break. Have you considered an alternative software?

Other alternative is building from source, it seems the project is doing buxfixes since 2020 but not releasing yet
