How do I change the link layer header type on the wireless interface? When I try to do this by double clicking on the current header (Ethernet wireshark crash with segmentation fault error

I want to do this to capture 802.11 packets as described here

To see 802.11 headers for frames, without radio information, you should: in Wireshark, if you're starting the capture from the GUI, select "802.11" as the "Link-layer header type" in the "Capture Options" dialog;

OS ubuntu 20.04

Reinstalling wireshark didn't help

Can you add the output of wireshark -v or Help->About Wireshark:Wireshark.
