'Heal Selection' Missing in Gimp 2.10.6 on Ubuntu 18.10

Thanks! That was it.

It's a bit counter-intuitive. The description for the gimp-python package is: "This package contains the python scripting extension for GIMP and the plugins making use of that extension." I'd have assumed that meant it was just for supporting Python scripts that you might find on the web and manually install in Gimp's plugin directory. But no, I see that it enables many extra features — the filter->enhance submenu has about 5 extra features, for example.

I've checked with an old Ubuntu 17.10 installation, and I can see that the gimp-python package did not exist back then ­— its content must have been included in the main Gimp 2.8 package. I don't know why they decided to hive it off. Maybe it should be made a dependency of the gimp-plugin-registry package.
