X2go Windows Client Won't Connect

Connected Tutorial
This question is a follow-up to this tutorial:

I followed the setup guide to the letter, and after installing the X2Go client on my Windows 10 machine, I tried connecting the session the guide helped me create. The X2Go UI said, “connecting”, and then asked if I wanted to trust the key of the server, I said yes, and waited a short while.

Then an Error dialogue appeared that said “bash: line 1: x2golistsessions: command not found”. Then I clicked OK and got shown a password login dialogue on the X2Go client. I tried that with the same resulting error. How can I go about troubleshooting this error? I am running Ubuntu 20.10 on my droplet.

Have you tried restarting your Windows PC after you installed the client?

Also what I could suggest is checking your X2Go logs for some more information on what could be going wrong.

Feel free to share the output of the logs here.
