There are different file formats for *.svg export in several programs. I export my vector drawings as »SVG for export«, no bitmap included. Then I just drag the *.svg file from the folder into Scribus and drop it onto an active page, where I can adjust the size and position later. It always works flawlessly.

You can do some vector graphics in Scribus, but basically it is not made for it. Scribus is a publishing software, comparable to InDesign oder Affinity Publisher or Quark Express. The strength of Scribus is to produce and pre-press books, flyers, posters, magazines, newspapers, etc.

If you want to work with vector graphics and have a Windows machine, you might consider Xara or Inkscape or Gimp, or Illustrator or Affinity Designer.

If you just want to import a graphic into Scribus and have the text flow around it, select the graphic, go to -> Properties -> Shape -> Select any flow scheme next to »Text Flow« you want to use
