Hello.

Thanks for your support.

I have solved the problem with brave-browser version update using following instructions (https://brave.com/linux/). It seeems that one of the previous distro upgrades disabled brave browser package repository and this resulted in outdated brave browser that caused the problem.

Steps to upgrade brave browser:
sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl

sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

Upgraded brave-browser version (no issues on startup):
Brave Browser 100.1.37.116
