Type

     apt list | grep python-gtk2

To installed the python-gtk2 type

    apt install python-gtk2

If  python-gtk2 is installed on their linux system, then anyone can 
build and install chirp from the source code, namely

https://trac.chirp.danplanet.com/chirp_daily/LATEST/chirp-daily-20220602.tar.gz

in 3 easy steps.

For qt dependencies requirements for flatpak, it depends up how you 
installed flatpak.

Since your system doesn't even have the command tail - which part of the 
core utilities -  anything is possible.

How many different chirp installs are there on the system?
