The newest Google Earth seems to be broken, so the fix is to install older version and hold that version. Not sure if lsb-core is required, but it might good to install before installing Google Earth.
apt install lsb-core
Remove unworkable Google earth
apt purge google-earth-pro-stable
Install the workable Google earth.
After installing Google Earth, hold the workable version.
sudo apt-mark hold google-earth-pro-stable
