So after digging into the above errors, and finding a vaiety of other issues ranging from mem leaks ongoing software glitches including GIMP, Thunderbird, and a few others…at least some of which were due to bugs as a result of updates

I found the fix…WIPE IT!

I downloaded the latest ISO, ran it through etcher to create a new thumb drive, and ran a new GTK install. Then ran the sudo parrot-upgrade downlaoded about another 300 updates, and now it’s up & running again, I have GIMP working again…we will see about Thunderbird, I have not yet installed it (really wish there was a better option). But the sytem is again stable, faster and I can work again. So I consider this issue solved.
