catalina doesn't support 32 bit applications any more – and afaik scribus 1.4.8 is in 32 bit.
probably a 'no fix' issue

with catalina you need a 64 bit dmg of the development version scribus 1.5.

(you will probably need the dmg at the top)

scribus 1.4 will not work with it.

you will need to downgrade your macos or use scribus 1.5.
be warned that documents edited with scribus 1.5 cannot be opened with scribus 1.4.
in your case, this is only an issue if you need to share the scribus files (.sla) with other people who are using scribus 1.4)
