Error occurs when try to hit the "settings" button

Hi there, may anyone can help me with anki, when I hit the settings-button this error occurs:

Anki 2.1.15 (442df9d6) Python 3.10.6 Qt 5.15.3 PyQt 5.15.6
Platform: Linux
Flags: frz=False ao=False sv=1

Caught exception:
File “/usr/share/anki/aqt/”, line 882, in onPrefs“Preferences”, self)
File “/usr/share/anki/aqt/”, line 82, in open
instance = creator(*args)
File “/usr/share/anki/aqt/”, line 25, in init
File “/usr/share/anki/aqt/”, line 80, in setupCollection
<class ‘TypeError’>: setValue(self, int): argument 1 has unexpected type ‘float’

The error-window recommends me to “check the database”, if I do so, nothing happens. I already uninstalled Anki and reistalled, still the error occurs. Please Help!
