Gnome-shell 3.38.1 crashes after logging in with an error in the logs.

Oct 27 08:39:59 coffee gnome-shell[2505]: JS ERROR: Error: GSettings key app-picker-layout not found in schema
Oct 27 08:39:59 coffee gnome-shell[2505]: Execution of main.js threw exception: Script <main> threw an exception seems like a similar issue in that it is also a missing
key. The issue is closed with the reason that it is likely a packaging issue, which is why I'm reporting this here.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
gnome-shell 1:3.38.1-1
gsettings-desktop-schemas 3.38.0-1
* config and/or log files etc.
gsettings indicates the key does not exist in the schema.

Steps to reproduce:
I am not sure how to reproduce this, I have updated gnome-shell
on both my desktop and my laptop. I have no issues on my laptop
but my desktop install is showing this issue.
This task depends upon

Workaround that works for now is to downgrade back to gnome-shell 3.36

My bad, I had schema files still laying around from a git install from a while ago. Those were placed in /usr/local/share and were read before the schemas in /usr/share.
