that can be because the Birthdays are provided by
Birthdays&Anniversaries calendar, not by the On This Computer/Personal
calendar. These are shown in the calendar if the corresponding calendar
is checked in the list of calendars on the left.

You claimed you use Evolution 3.32.2, but it looks like you use the
3.32.3 from Flatpak. Is that correct? At least using Flatpak changes a
lot of things, the directories are different and the overall work and
the way to debug things is very different from the host-system
installed Evolution.

In the Flatpak version, usual path to store user data is in:
That's where the On This Computer/Personal stores its data.
The system-calendar.source file is stored in:

If we are talking about the Flatpak version, then you cannot break
much. If you do not have much data setup in the Flatpak version, then
I'd suggest to start from scratch, that is:
a) restart the machine (this will make sure no background processes
   related to the Flatpak version of Evolution are running)
b) rename the Flatpak version directory, thus the next time you
   start Evolution it will create it from scratch. You can do it with:
   $ mv ~/.var/app/org.gnome.Evolution ~/.var/app/org.gnome.Evolution.bak
c) start the Flatpak version of Evolution. There will be no data, no
   accounts, just nothing, but there should not be any errors like before
   as well. You can always return back to the previous Flatpak version
   data when you run these two commands, ideally after restart (see a)):
   $ mv ~/.var/app/org.gnome.Evolution ~/.var/app/
   $ mv ~/.var/app/org.gnome.Evolution.bak ~/.var/app/org.gnome.Evolution

Hope it helps to fix the system-calendar error.
