Try running the following: flatpak remotes --columns=name,url,options

I think the issue is you have one remote installed as a user remote, and the other installed as a system remote. You might need to delete the signal remote and re-add it as a user remote.

True, you are right, it works now perfectly fine! Ty for your advice. May there is something to add to the commands so that won't happen for others in the future. Appreciate your work!
