crash on startup with error message concerning givaro import

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:
