xfce4-terminal does not start

I am making an Ubuntu 18.04 server with xfce on top. The reason is that I
want a cloud VM with X.

I followed the instructions

which correspond to these commands [1]

I can connect fine to the remote machine via VNC and I can do GUI actions
like clicking on the time, the startup/xfce mouse menu.

However, when I click on the terminal nothing happens. dpgk shows that is installed.

Any ideas on how I can debug/solve the problem?
