Bug Description

Steps to reproduce this bug:
1. Update the version of `gnome-characters` on Ubuntu Hirsute to `40~beta-1` (`gnome-characters --version` doesn't work and yields the same error relating to Handy)
2. Run `gnome-characters` from terminal (Note: DO NOT run Characters from application launcher because it will not work!)
3. Check the output of command

Expected behavior:
`gnome-characters` should open, should yield some warnings in the terminal

Actual behavior:
`gnome-characters` will simply yield `Unsatisfied dependency: Handy` to the terminal, even when supplying `--help` or `--version` to the command.

In Kubuntu build (so not huge amounts of gnome already):

gnome-characters confirmed to fail to start after install.

However, after installing the package 'gir1.2-handy-1' package, it seems to start as ok and as intended.
