mythtv-setup will not run

Hello,

I have a new Ubuntu 18.04 install. After updating the OS, I have added the Mythtv 30 PPA, and installed mythtv-backend-master. As I was not prompted to set the MySQL root password, I did the configuration needed to change the root password. I verified that the mythtv user could log into MySQL on the localhost and on a remote connection. I installed a GUI (Lubunut-core) and VNCSERVER. I added my user to the mythtv group and then logged into a VNC window to run setup. I stopped the mythtv-backend process and tried to start mythtv-setup. However, setup never opens. Instead the installer just asks if I want to start the backend process again and if I want to do a database fill. No errors logged to the console in either the terminal or the database fill screen. I am not seeing errors in the mythtv-backend log that are helpful. I have followed a number of posts from this forum with no joy. Can anyone point me in the right direction on what steps to take to further troubleshoot this issue?

Here are the lines from the mythtv-backend log:

This is the exact thing that's happening to me. Did you ever figure out how to resolve this?
