Torbrowser Launcher not launching

My torbrowser-launcher doesn’t seem to work for some time now, which means: The Tor Browser doesn’t start at all and only gives me this attached message.

Unfortunately I can’t do much with this one. I can’t find the bug but I know that there is a new update out since a few days. Did any of you fix it and how or is a manual update necessary?

TorBrowser Launcher isn’t yet fully compliant with Python 3.8. It was recently moved from the AUR into the Arch community repo with patches, but now those patches no longer work. Now we’ll just have to wait for upstream to fix it.

In the meantime, you can install Tor Browser the recommended way from the website. The launcher is just a convenience, is all.
