hi David,
the system has a version of libjson-validator-perl, thats too new for koha

it's probably manually been built/installed, via the cpan2deb tool?

try the following to fix the problem...

$ sudo apt update; sudo apt upgrade libjson-validator-perl

and confirm with...

$ apt-cache policy libjson-validator-perl
   Installed: 5.99+really3.14-koha1
   Candidate: 5.99+really3.14-koha1
   Version table:
  *** 5.99+really3.14-koha1 500
         500 http://debian.koha-community.org/koha 20.11/main amd64 Packages

If the version of this module is indeed the problem, I have to admit that I'm not sure how to go about forcing the installation of the correct one—Manos' solution in the GUI's package manager won't work in this server environment. It's a production instance, so I have to tread lightly. Again, my thanks go out to all readers and contributors!
