Links to meetings not opening in teams desktop

Finally after creating my fourth MS account, where most even this current one resulted in the loop that my email was already registered with my organization and to use another account, I was able to open the desktop application. However, when I follow a "click here to join meeting" link, Teams does not open the meeting or any dialogue related to it. You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.4.00.4855 (64-bit). Xfce desktop 4.12 Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) Kernel 5.9.0-0.bpo.5-amd64

You need to adjust the last line in /usr/bin/teams

Change:
nohup "$TEAMS_PATH" --disable-namespace-sandbox --disable-setuid-sandbox "$@" > "$TEAMS_LOGS/teams-startup.log" 2>&1 &

To:
nohup "$TEAMS_PATH" "$@" --disable-namespace-sandbox --disable-setuid-sandbox > "$TEAMS_LOGS/teams-startup.log" 2>&1 &

Now, we have confirmed that this is a bug. Microsoft will fix it with next version.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

I haven't had a chance to do a Teams meeting yet. This afternoon I will have a chance and confirm whether it works now or not.

This fix improved the behaviour of Teams, i.e. it would open a meeting session, but for the first time the host and invitee [sp?] weren't able to connect to the same meeting. There was some trouble with the meeting link actually invoking a "join" meeting on both sides, but this fixed at least my side of the problem. Subsequent meetings work, once the system somehow registered the meeting in both the host and invitees account.
