SageMath had been running perfectly on my linux mint xfce install, until yesterday when it started crashing on startup with the error below:

ImportError: /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/sage/matrix/ undefined symbol: _ZNK6Givaro7IntegercvNSt7__cxx1112basic_stringIcSt11char_traitsIcESaIcEEEB5cxx11Ev

I tried reinstalling sage and libgivaro9, with no effect. downgrading libgivaro produced a different error. everything has been installed through the APT repository.

Here is the top of the crash report:
