Thanks for the link!
But I think I am running versions 2.8 and not 2.10 as the link seams to describe

Ok, Linux Mint. Which version, LM 20 or maybe (17) ? Where did you get Gimp, the LM repository (could be 2.8 depending on LM version) / as a flatpak (should be latest Gimp 2.10.24) / from a PPA, could be ????

First step: Go into the Help menu in that Gimp window and click on 'About' That tells you the Gimp version.
Next: Press the TAB key. Does that get the left and right docks back ?
Next (unlikely): If it does not get the docks back then check in that Gimp 'Windows' Menu, bottom is a tick box 'Single -Window Mode' , make sure it is ticked.
If all else fails: Into the Edit menu, towards the bottom is Preferences , In Preferences is Window Management, Click on Reset Saved Window Positions to Default Values. https://i.imgur.com/aGM8ooc.jpg Restart Gimp.

Removing a background can be easy - a solid plain colour background, well defined subject, or multi-colour / dark / confused BG with FG not too different from BG. What you use is determined by the image.

Give us a clue ?

the portable version / AppImage can be downloaded from here

There is very little hope for you Wink

However, one last try: https://youtu.be/GzmpO2AoWXw 4 and a half minutes.

Well, I taught myself many times not to try to help others.
