/usr/bin/squeak is usually a symlink. In your case, I suspect it is linked to 
the 3.10-3/ path while the search order could have 3.10-4 before this path. To 
 a) Remove the unneeded version.
 b) If you need both, create launcher scripts with the right PATH and 
SQUEAK_PLUGIN env variables or use explicit path, e.g
    /usr/lib/squeak/3.10-3/squeak -plugins /usr/lib/squeak/3.10-3
Check if your squeak binaries support SQUEAK_PLUGINS env variable
  $ strings `which squeak` | grep SQUEAK_
