"Universe" is a funny name for this system, because it is NOT
everything in the world, but very much a closed system.   There are
supposed to be many Universes, each for one version of Squeak.  The
first Universe was for 3.9.   The one you are using is probably the
one for 3.10, which was part of the standard release.  (Universe was
just an add-on for 3.9).   The problem is that later releases of
Squeak have continued to include Universe, but they are still pointing
to the old 3.10 database.   The 3.10 Universe should NOT be changed to
work with later versions of Squeak.  Instead, the idea is that a new
Universe should be created for each version.  That has not happened,
so Universe is not really useful for later versions of Squeak.

if you want to use the 3.10 Universe, get a 3.10 image.   Then it
should work fine.  You can play with the code and see how it works,
export it, and try to get it to work in the current version of Squeak.
