I installed the resynthesizer plugin following the instructions on github.com/bootchk/resynthesizer. I downloaded resynthesizer.tar_0.gz from pixlsus's github moved the resynthesizer, resynthesizer_gui, and .py files to /home/USER/snap/gimp/322/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins and made the .py files executable (I also tried /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins).

When I attempt to use heal selection I get the following error:

Calling error for procedure 'gimp-procedural-db-proc-info': Procedure 'plug-in-resynthesizer' not found

This appears to be the same problem as http://gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=16268 and How to install Resynthesizer Plugin in GIMP snap?. But both of those solutions involve running an executable from a random forum user. The files from bootchk's instructions are from 2011. Where is there an up-to-date resynthesizer?

Kubuntu 20.04 GIMP 2.10.18

You have chosen hard and long way.

According to official README -

If you want to install a package of third-party plugins (that includes Resynthesizer):

Linux: install the package "gimp-plugin-registry" (available for most distributions, including Debian and Ubuntu).

So you need to install single deb-package by

sudo apt-get install gimp-plugin-registry

and then find Resynthesizer in the GIMP menus: Filters → Map → Resynthesize.
