Bug Description

In a fresh install of disco release, if I install multi-monitors addon from apt (sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-multi-monitors) and reload Gnome, the extension will not load (Gnome Tweak will display the error message "error loading extension").

In the other side, if I click in the error message from Gnome Tweak, then Ubuntu Software is loaded, which will say that the extension is not installed (wondering if it's because it uses as source).

Then if I install from Ubuntu Software (which I think uses and reload, it'll work.

Probably the packaged version is not updated? (Packaged version is 16, version is 18).

Inspecting the related Debian package, only in experimental the extension is updated to version 18 (which works on Gnome 3.32):
