I have a fresh install of QGIS 3, installed using OSGEO4W. At the first launch, I choose to not import the parameters from QGIS 2, but rather start from scratch. I also have QGIS 2.18.17 LTS version, installed also with OSGEO4W.
The first thing I tried after launching QGIS 3 was "Plugin->Manage and Install plugins", which produces the following crash:

Not sure if it will help, but there is a hope. Could you please try to delete any existing *.pyc files from
and, just in case, from the current profile folder (you'll find it in menu Settings -> User profiles -> Open Active Profile Folder)

Thanks. Anyway, I suspect it's a kind of conflict in your OSGeo4W. Today we notice numerous problems after upgrade in OSGeo4W, while I didn't hear about such problems with the standalone installer (what is basically a fresh installation of packages taken from OsGeo4W)
So I'd try a fresh install (e.g. the standalone installer) first. If it works, probably removing and re-installing all C:\OSGeo4W will help too.

Did you try the qgis-dev (3.1) package, like in the other report? Or the standalone installer?
Looks like a Python crash when the Plugin Manager calls it to fetch new plugins. The question is if the reason is some obsolete files in C:\OsGeo4W, a conflict with another Python instance or just some registry settings.
