I have recently loaded the latest Ubuntu software, which is version 21.04. And now I have problems with the column command in terminal. When I do the following command, then the columns, which should be nicely aligned, are instead severely scrambled. In fact, it is only the rows containing the directory names that are giving problems.

$ pass | column
On the other hand, when I do the following command, then the columns appear to be aligned as they should be.

$ tree ~/.password-store | column
Until very recently I had Ubuntu Mate 18.04, and on that operating system there was no problem with scrambled columns. Likewise, when I run the command
pass | column
on the Raspberry Pi with Raspbian, there is no problem of scrambled columns.

How to resolve it?
