So much for random files downloaded from the Internet :))

I'm also curious if polyphone opens it without warnings of errors.

Did you try fluidsynth or qsynth after the update?

If you were using a-fluidsynth, that does not use system-wide
libfluidsynth. The plugin is completely self-contained.

You could grab a https://nightly.ardour.org/ (demo is fine) and copy
/opt/Ardour-6.0.pre*/lib/LV2/a-fluidsynth.lv2 to ~/.lv2/

(or compile ardour-git from source and use build/libs/LV2/a-fluidsynth.lv2)

so long,
