I would be grateful if someone can help me identify an Ubuntu open source app that will allow me to move files (not copy files) from various sub-folders over to a single destination folder using a text file name list to drive the entire operation. I tried using the RSYNC command inside the terminal but had no success. Therefore, my focus now is to find an open source app that offers advanced file management capabilities straight out of the box. Thank you for your time.

If I understand your question correctly, you can use terminal file manager nnn with which you can select files from multiple directories and move all of them to a destination directory in a single go.
