ProtonVPN-GTK won't start

I switched from Protonvpn-GUI to the more recent implementation PROTONVPN-GTK
and it worked flawlessly up until about a month or so ago. I tried starting it via Konsole and this was the output. I am using KDE Plasma 6 on Wayland and Tumbleweed. I was wondering if anyone has a fix or any info on this issue if anyone else is even having this issue.

Traceback (most recent call last):
