After Updates , GNOME-CONTROL-CENTER won't launch from GUI, so I laubched it from terminal , i got Segmentation Fault , i traced it with GDB it signals :
__GI_libc_free (mem=0x1000000000) at malloc.c:3093
3093 malloc.c : No such file or directory
So i used valgrind and the output is on these files below !
And this is the Stack Trace output

I can't reproduce your issue here.

The relevant part of valgrind gives some sort of stack trace:
==17133== Invalid free() / delete / delete[] / realloc()

It seems to be related with one of your mounts? Can you show us the output of "cat /etc/fstab" and "mount"?

The failed address is 0x1000000000 which doesn't look like a valid address (a real address would look more random). So somehow the pointer got corrupted...

Closing due to lack of activity.
