So I put a bandaid on this by mixing package versions of network-manager

/var/cache/apt/archives/network-manager_1.18.0-3_amd64.deb
/var/cache/apt/archives/network-manager_1.20.0-1_amd64.deb

specifically re-introducing the network-manager plugins from 1.18.0

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/NetworkManager/1.18.0/
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/NetworkManager/1.20.0/

I did this in response to journalctl messages, like these

`....device plugin: failed to open directory /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/NetworkManager/1.18.0`
....manager: (wlp0s20u3): 'wifi' plugin not available; creating generic device

But WHY/WHAT is linked to v1.18 while aptitude seems to claim the package v1.20 satisfies all dependencies…?

So reinstalling network-manager did not help?
