My guess is that you're trying to run vino under a GNOME *Wayland* session,

As designed vino is tied to the X server. It's not targeted for porting
to Wayland. AIUI capturing the entire screen is simply not allowed
for security reasons under wayland. Remoting functionality needs to be
implemented at a different level in the stack on Wayland (and vino
is not part of the solution at all).
