Problem FTB won't install correctly, very inconsistent

This is the same thing I said the support channel of the discord.

ok, ive spent the past 5 or 6 hours trying to get this issue sorted out and i just cant figure it out. im having an issue with the launcher installing properly. im on linux mint 20 and whenever i run the shell file from the website it will start the install like normal but sometimes it stops partway through and sometimes it finishes but the app doesnt have an icon on my open window area and when i try to install a modpack it says creating enviroment and then installing vanila launcher and after a few minutes there are up to 3 installing vanila launcher messages on the app. ive tried re installing to no avail. i think ive narrowed the problem down to something to do with creeper launcher.

1600962554049.png the icon for the launcher on my window panel

then it went from creating environment to installing vanila launcher and its been doing that ever since.

Here is the error log as of right now.
