Ubuntu 18.04

I have recently found chrome and chromium both return the following error when running from a shell (running from menu->process just exits):

Segmentation fault (core dumped)
ERROR:nacl_helper_linux.cc(308)] NaCl helper process running without a sandbox!
Most likely you need to configure your SUID sandbox correctly

What I have tried:

sudo apt-get purge google-chrome-stable
sudo apt-get purge chromium-browser
sudo apt-get autoremove
rm -rf ~/.config/google-chrome
#download chrome then
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb 
#then try again
google-chrome
#get same error as above

Then I tried:

apport-bug google-chrome --save chrome_bug_report.txt

and got the following dialog box:

Problem in google-chrome, the problem cannot be reported, this report is about a package that is not installed

Tried

strace google-chrome-stable

Error thrown:

--- SIGSEGV {si_signo=SIGSEGV, si_code=SEGV_MAPERR, si_addr=0x4} ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV (core dumped) +++
Segmentation fault

As final check tried running as root:

sudo google-chrome --no-sandbox
[0924/200911.107145:ERROR:nacl_helper_linux.cc(308)] NaCl helper process running without a sandbox!
Most likely you need to configure your SUID sandbox correctly

Note I am connecting to the machine via Xvnc

Any ideas to try?

Same issue here running kali-linux-2018.4-amd64.iso via VMware Workstation 16 on a new Windows 11 laptop.

Chrome is not opening at all by selecting the Icon from favorites menu, however it does open (albeit with naCl_helper error) after entering sudo google-chrome --no-sandbox
