I have been using vscode successfully with Julia on linux for years.
Julia Version 1.8.2

Today I ran juliaup to update to 1.8.2 and now the julia language server won’t start the repl from inside vscode (ctrl-shift-p Julia:start REPL). It opens the terminal pane for a few seconds then closes it without starting the REPL.
I assume this is because juliaup and the julia extension for vscode are not interacting well together. I uninstalled and reinstalled the julia language extension which didn’t fix the problem then uninstalled vscode and reinstalled it and the language extension which still didn’t fix the problem. There must be some cached state somewhere which is not being deleted.
I also tried manually entering the path to the julia executable. The only julia executable I can find is in the .julia/juliaup/julia-1.8.2+0.x64/bin folder but if I use that path the same problem occurs.
Anyone had this problem and figured out how to fix it?
Next to the terminal tab in VSCode there is also an output tab, where you can find logs from Julia, the language server, etc. Do you see anything there that might point to a problem?
Here is the output from a fresh start of vscode with a single attempt to start the julia REPL.

ctrl-shift-P Julia:start REPL doesn’t seem to cause any output.
i deleted .config/Code and .vscode and reinstalled julia and vscode from scratch. Now everything seems to work.
