Did you move the original .lrcat file?
Which location did you move it to?
Moving the catalog, does not delete the data within it.
You should directly navigate to that location and open the .lrcat file and it should open.
I did indeed move the original .lrcat file
it now lives in /home/Pictures/Lightroom
I too was pretty sure that should not delete data: this is why I am very baffled.
And no: quitting LR, navigating to the .lrcat and opening it by double tapping it does not solve the matter

That is strange.
You should search for .lrcat files on your machine and load them one by one to get to the main catalog you are looking for.
I have. It is only just this one catalog - I never had more than one
