Cannot open XML files without a version

What is your operating system?
Arch Linux x86_64

What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)? Is it 32-bit?

Latest: 22.06.23 x86_64 AppImage

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?

Yes, easily.
0: Make a test video in Openshot or Final Cut Pro
1: Export an XML file from either software
2: Attempt to open it through Shotcut

Although Both Shotcut and Openshot use MLT they are not compatible, i.e. you cannot take an MLT file created by one and open it in the other and expect it to work. The roadmap does have an item which says “add Kdenlive XML export”, but this has not been implemented (yet).
