An apt search for pdfarranger comes up empty.
I think pdfarranger is not in the repos.
How did you install it, and where from? Be precise.

You are probably missing some libraries. pdfarranger git site says to install the following.

Code:
sudo apt install python3-distutils-extra python3-wheel python3-gi python3-gi-cairo gir1.2-gtk-3.0 gir1.2-poppler-0.18 python3-setuptools

@anticapitalista They are only needed to install from source. When installing through APT as OP did, apt-get would take care of dependencies.

Except it doesn't install them all.

(S)/He will definitely need to install python3-gi-cairo

to avoid this error

Code:
TypeError: Couldn't find foreign struct converter for 'cairo.Context'
