Is there a way I can install it without having to compile it from source? I do not think that Octave 9.1 has been added to the Arch repos yet.

I suspect it is related to Qt6.  Can you try upgrading to the newest stable release of Octave which is 9.1.  This was released literally just days ago, but it includes support for Qt6.

Octave opens normally, but when I click and drag the title bar of a widget, the GUI immediately crashes. This happens consistently with any any widget that I try to undock this way. It also happens when I use the ctrl+alt+d shortcut. I launched the GUI from the terminal and when the program crashed, it exited with signal 11. I originally installed Octave with pacman. I this is the first time I have used Octave since I updated to KDE Plasma 6, so I am thinking that the issue is related to that. The only other apps I have open when this occurs are discord (flatpak) and signal-desktop
