You have reported a bug (which is good). You don't need a question as well.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #3

Which Ubuntu release and versions of gajim-omemo and python3-axolotl are you using?
What is the output of the commands

uanme -a
lsb_release -crid
apt-cache policy gajim-omemo python3-axolotl

There is a newer version of gajim-omemo for focal (version 2.6.29-1), where the changelog tells "fixes compatibility with new axolotl (Closes: https://bugs.debian.org/940603 )"
Maybe this is what's needed.

"But bug can not created without question":
This is not true, you can use e.g. the command "ubuntu-bug gajim-omemo"

"Maybe this is what's needed.
Exactly !
But on latest ubuntu release there is 2.6.27 plugin version":

Try the following:
wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/gajim-omemo_2.6.29-1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i gajim-omemo_2.6.29-1_all.deb

If this works well, then a possible solution to your problem is "backporting gajim-omemo 2.6.29-1 from focal to eoan".
This can be requested as described in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBackports (Remark: currently not working, because the "Eoan Backports" project does not exist).

In that case there is nothing left to do.
