This might not apply to your problem, but I had a similar issue
that turned out to be related to having qt5.13.x on my machine.
It was an [alien] version blacklisted from updates by slackpkg.
I removed the old qt5.13.x with pkgtool and then slackpkg install-new updated me
to the qt5.15 version that had been skipped by slackpkg due to the
[alien] blacklist.

Plasma5 worked right away after a reboot.
