I'm not clear on what you mean by cloned, but assume you mean that you
just copied your home directory.

Again, this is unclear - if you did more than just copy your home dir,
like rsync'ing the entire filesystem, then I would, personally, just
start a fresh install.

If my assumption on copying your home dir is all you did, then as root,
just move your home directory out of the way, create a fresh one, log
completely out and log back in - you will have to consider whatever
proper $USER and $GROUP to use.
# mv /home/$USER /home/$USER-backup
# cp -a /etc/skel /home/$USER
# chown -R $USER:$GROUP /home/$USER
If your definition of "clone" is something else, please, be more specific.
