Description of problem:
This problem cropped up in the latest fully updated M8.
Start qt-fsarchiver. After asking the root password, it also asks a sudopassword (never did that before, but let that pass on), the it gives the message "You need to install qt-fsarchiver-terminal separately" and the window appears but it is useless since it does not display any partition of the system.
It might be six months or more since I used it last time, but this problem is new to me.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current version in the repo.
Allways. Starting as normal user or as root makes no difference.
Steps to Reproduce:
Indeed. This is also mentioned here:
"qt-fsarchiver has been split into a program with a graphical user interface and a terminal program.
Both programs must be installed.
The graphical program can be started without superuser rights.
Thus startup problems with gksu/gksudo, (which is no longer installable) were solved with Wayland and Snap packages."

Herman, this looks like a duplicate of bug 28791. Please look at that.
To re-cap, that shows the steps to see the GUI - which does not show any partitions in the "Existing partitions" box! (I have just tried it to be sure).
The underlying command line 'fsarchiver' is OK.
Hence I am closing it thus, but do re-open it if your problem is different. I am intrigued by your implication that it used to work (it has not for other people, at least for Mageia 8):
