I'm using Debian, but, my goal with this is to run Scribus from a Docker container.  I'm trying to move my document build steps to the cloud, but I don't want to pay for a dedicated Linux instance for that.  If I can build a Docker container that runs Scribus then I think I'll be in a better overall position in the cloud.  Instead figuring out all the other Linux packages my container would need for Scribus, I thought the appimage approach would be faster.  However, I then found that appimages use FUSE, and Docker doesn't like FUSE.  The --appimage-extract-and-run option gets rid the need for FUSE, but, then I hit this extract error.

I searched Docker Hub and didn't find a Scribus container already made!
