Just as a side note there's a "disable-extension-version-validation"
setting which you can set to true and it will not do the extension
version checks: 

gsettings set disable-extension-version-validation true

You can then see if an extension actually does work fine and just needs
it's version check updated, or if it really needs actual porting work to
the new version. 

Also, as an even more aside note here, the
gnome-shell-extension-openweather extension is one of the broken ones.
It needs porting to new libsoup. Turns out the upstream maintainer
ported it a while back, but because ubuntu hadn't moved to the new
libsoup, they just reverted it. :( Now that debian is moving to it also
perhaps they can re-land the port or have some kind of runtime check and
work with either.
