Sure, the flatpak repository has been updated to Qt 5.12 and the second
release candidate for Octave 5.1. The correct version number is 5.0.91.
The error about the help collection is due to what I think is a Qt 5.12
bug. See https://github.com/flathub/org.octave.Octave/issues/45.
In general it's best to report flatpak-specific problems to the GitHub
project at https://github.com/flathub/org.octave.Octave/issues. Most
people on this help mailing list aren't following or aware of the
details of the flatpak packaging effort.
