This was quickly solved after I discussed with the author. I updated https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/UBlock_Origin to version 1.14.4, it should work with IceCat 52.1.0.

Greetings all,

I recently noticed that uBlock Origins was labelled incompatible with
IceCat 52.1.0. The author published a new version (1.14.0) which drops
the support for any Firefox-based browser that does not support
WebExtensions. It looks like IceCat page saw that version and updated
uBlock Origins without (being capable of?) checking whether that version
could actually be used.

It was possible to reverse this update by downloading uBlock 1.13.8 from
and disabling automatic updates for it (not sure if disabling them was
necessary), but it would be nice if -- until WebExtensions are supported
by IceCat, of course -- IceCat would hold back add-on updates if they
are marked as incompatible with the corresponding Firefox version (in
this case, 52.1.0esr).

Kind regards.
