Does `mate --version` also fail? If not, what version does it report?

You should be able to force install of the latest by going to 
Preferences → Terminal and uninstall/install `mate`, but `mate` has 
never used Objective-C garbage collection, so I am rather puzzled about 
this error.

This is the latest “regular release”, you’ll have to switch to 
nightly builds for something more recent, but we did not make any 
changes in `mate` for 10.12 compatibility (as it should work).
