Most likely your XDG_DATA_HOME or XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable contains a stray extra colon that doesn't belong in it.

What are the values of these variables on your system?

Not a blocker as it doesn't prevent using FileZilla, these asserts are continuable.

Now I have taken snapshots of the environment on the very same machine as user:

XDG_DATA_DIRS=/usr/local/share:/usr/share (HOME_DIR not set)

... and as root:

... wait a minute; I am trying here on another machine where XDG_DATA_DIRS=/usr/share/xfce4:::/usr/share - and the bug is reproducible here on the FTS Celsius H265/H270 - and I can press on continue.

Yes, that's not a valid list of paths. According to the XDG Base Directory Specifications, XDG_DATA_DIRS contains a colon separated list of absolute paths. Empty segments between two colons are neither absolute nor paths.

According to the specs, programs are supposed to ignore invalid data. Unfortunately due to a bug in wxWidgets, this didn't happen for empty segments. I've committed a path to wxWidgets that fixes this issue:
