Did you install xpra from the ubuntu's repository or the from the xpra's
Here is what I have done to overpass your error:
[ 17041.467] (EE) XKB: Could not invoke xkbcomp
[ 17041.472] (EE) XKB: Couldn't compile keymap
[ 17041.472] (EE) XKB: Failed to load keymap. Loading default keymap

[ 17041.474] XKB: Failed to compile keymap
[ 17041.474] Keyboard initialization failed. This could be a missing or
incorrect setup of xkeyboard-config.

Fatal server error
1) I installed Ubuntu 18.10 on a VPS (they may have altered the default
2) I checked wether universe is activated or not (/etc/apt/sources.list).
It should be.
3) wget "https://xpra.org/repos/cosmic/xpra.list"
4) wget "https://xpra.org/gpg.asc" && apt-key add gpg.asc && rm gpg.asc

7) apt-get install xpra xfce4 dbus-x11 at-spi2-core python-xdg menu-xdg
menu python-uinput python-paramiko python-netifaces (this list of packages
can be expanded by trial-and-error to disable more warnings and errors from
the xpra log)
9) I set the root passwd (I don't want to dive into xpra's ssh key
management on my current Windows 7 client for the moment)
11) I tested my set up (see below)
I have been able to reproduce your XKB error. It happened to me when I
start xpra more than once on the same display port, so be careful to stop
xpra through your testing workflow:
a) xpra start-desktop :108 --start-child=startxfce4 --exit-with-children
b) test on client, debug on server with logs, install needed packages,
reconfigure or change command-line arguments
c) xpra stop
d) xpra list
e) Go to step a
