Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and help make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we cannot work on this bug because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read 'How to report bugs effectively' http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.

We have instructions on debugging some types of problems at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures.

At a minimum, we need:
1. The specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem.
2. The behavior you expected.
3. The behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).

Thanks!

The package is missing desktop-login.oga and desktop-logout.oga which should be smylinked from the existing service-login.oga and service-logout.oga.

Why should that be done in the package and isn't done upstream? Also how do you test those service, using what desktop?

As mentioned in the bug description, I've filed a MR upstream to fix the issue and this is a downstream bug for tracking. To test the issue, install the freedesktop sound theme and enable it as the default sound theme, and install the gnome-session-canberra to get the startup and shutdown execution. I'm running xubuntu 20.04.

Thanks for the details, the url in the description is a Debian change, not an upstream one though, but let's see if it gets reviewed there

Debian is upstream to Ubuntu. Here is a MR at freedesktop.org.

The issue is old and has been discussed e.g in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=538617

The sounds have been removed in that commit
https://cgit.freedesktop.org/sound-theme-freedesktop/commit/?id=7c4e2f77

Are service-login and logout really supposed to be session login and logout sounds though? Let's see if upstream or Debian have an opinion

Looking as the spec file, it seem that I maybe mistaken.
http://0pointer.de/public/sound-naming-spec.html

desktop-login The sound used when a user logs into the system, played as a welcome sound immediately after the login screen disappeared.
desktop-logout The sound used when a user logs out of the system.
service-login The sound used when a user logs into a service (i.e. Gaim login)
service-logout The sound used when a user logs out of a service (i.e. Gaim logout)
system-ready The sound used when the computer is booted up and shows the login screen.
system-shutdown The sound used when the computer is being shut down.
